For the last 20 years ShanghART has been a pioneering force in the world of contemporary art in Shanghai. During this time the gallery has accumulated a vast archive of materials related to the development of the gallery’s artists, the Shanghai art scene, and the larger networks of contemporary art in China and in the world.
This unique archive is available to the public for the first time at ShanghART’s recently opened gallery space in the West Bund cultural corridor. Functioning as a library, a bookstore, and research centre, the ShanghART Archive makes available a vast quantity of documentary evidence from an explosive period in the development of Chinese contemporary culture.
The ShanghART archive is housed in state of the art facilities, beautifully designed to support communication between researchers, scholars, writers, art lovers, media and the general public. Regularly scheduled events, book launches, open forums and panel discussions form the basis for this newly established information platform at the center of Shanghai’s newest cultural destination.*For further information, please contact ShanghART at firstname.lastname@example.org
