    Full Description

    A visit to a museum is an extraordinary opportunity for imagination, liberation from the mundane routines of daily life, and opening the door to a world of diversified perspectives. In the last two decades, an artistic network has flourished along the scenic banks of Shanghai’s Huangpu River and Suzhou Creek, both prominent waterways in the city. As of 2023, the 6.3-kilometre waterfront along Suzhou Creek has been transformed into an awe-inspiring canvas housing more than 100 vibrant art spaces. Meanwhile, the Huangpu River has become a hub of artistic expression, featuring renowned cultural areas like the Bund, the “West Bund Cultural Corridor” project, initiated in 2010, and the post-Expo venues.

    Roaming Shanghai’s Art Museums guides readers through every path that leads to the most important 15 art museums in Shanghai. This book unveils a comprehensive treasure trove of art museum insights, accompanied by precious photographs, and engaging dialogues with directors and architects. From industrial relics to architectural masterpieces by Pritzker Award winning architects like David Chipperfield, Jean Nouvel, and Tadao Ando, it takes readers to a world of art. Embrace the journey of artistic exploration, where each museum visit becomes a transformative and enriching encounter with creativity and human expression.

    Text in English and Chinese.
