In a busy city like Shanghai, it can be hard to see beyond the sheer consumerism. The M50 is a place to do exactly that. Packed in their studios, dozens of artists display their art for free. If you are lucky, you can even see some of them in action, creating the most wonderful things. There is a small café... More

This was the first place that I have gone for the start of the art galleries. They have a lot of the little art galleries all around. You can spend quite a few hours there exploring, we spend about an hour plus there because we had to go somewhere else to meet another friend but here's what we were doing... More

I love this area of Shanghai. It's a little gallery district with a wide range of artwork. Many different styles and mediums. Spend an afternoon here and get lost in the little pathways and galleries. The graffiti wall leading up to it is cool to see too.

I enjoyed my walk around M50, its really a diffferent side of Shanghai, away from the hustle and bustle and regular tourist attractions. I have a collection of photos and thoughts on my website http://www.alexroanphotography.com/shanghaiartm50/

Great space with a number of galleries to visit but it's missing a soul. If you like contemporary art, then you could spend a couple of hours here. Personally, I found Red Town more enjoyable.

- Plan around 2 hours for casual walkers - There is a sit-down cafe inside the complex for sore-legs - A nice getaway from the throngs of tourists on bund/tianzifang/jingan

There are lot of small art galleries packed to this old industrial area & therefore lots to see. Liked about the chances to meet in some galleries the artists & have a chance to discuss their paintings. Mostly focused to contemporary art. During Saturday afternoon visit there were also some openings of new exhibitions and some galleries offered free snacks... More

If you've been to Beijing's 798, Shanghai's M50 will not be unfamiliar. Though I was hoping to get the same vibe M50 felt rather mellow somehow. Still it was a nice day visiting galleries and talking to the curators about the exhibits.

Large area with galleries and workshops... Some busy, some deserted.. All sorts of contemporary art right down to some nice souvenir kitsch for the tourists...
