You ABSOLUTELY MUST VISIT ISLAND 6--an absolutely amazing art gallery in the M50 Creative Park which has so many stunningly creative works of art mixing media of sound, video, etc. We met with one of the sound artists, Mykel, who showed us around. You will be so entertained. There were a lot of other fun galleries and art shops that... More

Quite hard to get to and quite hard to get back from, the M50 Creative Park really is not worth the effort. Hearing of a vibrant contemporary art scene in Shanghai rivalling that which is reported of Beijing (although even less in evidence there), we made the trek out. There were few studios open and those few (with one exception)... More

A pleasant journey in Shanghai's heart of art. Based in a former industrial complex with multiple low-level buildings all renovated to welcome galleries, ateliers and expositions. Plenty of expositions, some require an entrance fee. An interesting restaurant that looks like a mishmash of different objects you could have found at your grandma's or in an old quaint hotel. You will... More

If you are interested in contemporary art, this is a great spot to visit. Quite a collection of small and big galleries, in some old repurposed buildings. ShangArt is the biggest gallery and always has some great art. Also: some lovely photo opportunities for your Instagram feed.

Metro Hangzhong Road, line 1 (red) and a good 15 minute fast walk – Jade temple on the way. On the way there are a lot of buildings, from super expensive (lining Suzhou Creek) to super ugly (bridge that leads to Haifang road). Sometimes no sidewalk at all, but easy to find. Many galleries were closed or abandoned but there... More

This is a really well thought out artistic district in Shanghai, very close to line 13 Jiangning road. (exit 2). There are dozens of small independent galleries here (all of whom are free to enter and look around) and many of which have the artist in residence to either discuss their work or in the process of touching up work....

Take line 13 to Jiangning Road. Walk out exit 2 and turn right. Do not walk up the bridge- stay to the right at ground level. In less than 100 meters you will T at West Suzhou Road. Turn left and enjoy the quiet lovely shady walk north. You will basically walk straight to the park (look for the smokestack).... More

Go on a weekend and you'll find a mini flea market (I say mini coz it's really quite small) tht sells beautiful handmade stuff, then take some time to slowly explore the space. Its alleys are full of working galleries and exhibitions by some of China's up and coming artists. The atmosphere was positively creative, so go with an open... More
