ShanghART West Bund

West Bund Art Galleries

Speaker: Julie Chun

As part of Xuhui District’s expansive cultural endeavor, West Bund has steadily been constructing museums, galleries and exhibition spaces at an unprecedented rate in Shanghai’s urban history. In between the two museums of the Yuz Museum and the West Bund Long Museum, galleries have relocated to take advantage of the prime riverfront site.

This gallery walk is led by Julie Chun who has been writing about the development of Chinese contemporary art. We will visit several art galleries along the West Bund corridor that showcase both established and emerging artists to discuss the impact of the city’s artistic and cultural growth on contemporary society. We will speak to gallery owners and directors to get their point of view in an open session while viewing works of contemporary art from abroad and within.

Note: Please wear comfortable shoes and come prepared as we will be visiting several galleries on foot despite any inclement weather.
