Beautiful building, I saw the solo exhibition of fellow Belgian Francis Alÿs here and enjoyed both the works of art and the architecture of the building.

Ivé seen some very good exhibitions here - the Song Dong exhibition last year was exceptional. The curation is first-rate. It's a small museum, so they can really focus on one artist or theme quite well. Do review the web site though. The museum often...More

Have been there a few times and never disappointed. There is a small shop on ground floor, exhibitions on next floors and a cafe/library on top where you can chill and enjoy some books. You might need to check on the exhibition before as sometime...More

The 1930s heritage Art Deco building in the historic Rockbund district very close to the famous Bund is lovely for those who like this period of architecture (I do!). I am not a fan of contemporary art and so it very much depend on one's...More

A building with a history! Often changing exhibitions for art lovers, and sometimes the exhibition is not worth, but the neighborhood is very inspiring.

Having had high expectations with this venue being near the Bund and continually praised in Time Out Shanghai, I was hugely disappointed. It was very small and hosted a strange exhibition. Unfortunately one of the main art pieces on the whole 3rd floor was completely...More
