About Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art
   Founded on October 1, 2012, Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art is the first public contemporary art museum in mainland China and the main venue of the Shanghai Biennale. It is located on Shanghai’s mother river, the Huangpu River, with a construction area of ​​41,000 square meters and an exhibition area of ​​15,000 square meters. The interior cantilever is 27 meters and the chimney up to 165 meters is both an urban landmark and an independent exhibition space.
   The building of Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art was transformed from the former Nanshi Power Plant. During the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, it was once an ‘urban future museum’. It has witnessed Shanghai’s urban transition from the industrial to the information age. Its rough and unruly industrial architectural style has provided artistic workers with a wealth of imagination and creative inspiration. As the ‘production workshop’ of the new city culture, constantly renewing itself and keeping itself in progress is the source of life for this museum. The Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art is working hard to provide the public with an open platform for contemporary culture and art display and learning; eliminate the barriers between art and life; and promote cooperation and knowledge production between different cultures and arts.
