Rock Art

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

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 personal feelings about that kind of art, but the piles of old crackers, cookies and... More

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 in Chinese, so it got completely lost on us. A lot of the walls were... More

A contemporary art exhibition space is always only going to be as good as the current exhibition and it's not my intention to rate the art here, but more the venue. We saw Song Dong's 'I don't know the mandate of heaven', which was a well conceived set of works based around a Confusian maxim and the artist's feelings at... More

shanghai knows contemporari art, and they do show very rellevant things. On our visit RAM showed Felix Gonsales-Torrez (yes, again, but still we just love him). Exept for this, its a quit posh location, French caffee around, European vibes, and generally you feel like not in Shnghai !

This is a nice little gallery, but because it is quite small it doesn't have permanent exhibition space and your experience is going to depend largely on what's going on in the three gallery spaces. On the day I was there, one of them was a fairly simple video art and one of them was an installation piece of old... More

I found the staff here very helpful and was provided with a helpful information leaflet to guide me around the various exhibits. It wasn't where I was expecting to find it based on my map but worth a look around if you're in the area

It's a pleasant place with good exibitions. You get also coffe or tea for the price of entrance ticket 30rmb. It's also worth checking out museum's neighbourhood, which can be surprising.

On our first day in Shanghai we visited the Bund and went out of our way to visit the Rockbund Art Museum based on a suggestion in our guide book. We were very disappointed by the size of the museum and the poor quality of the exhibits. The items mentioned in our tour book had long departed the museum and... More

On a rainy Shanghai day, we had some time to kill and decided to visit the Rockbund Art Museum. The building is beautiful, the exhibition was interesting and the entry fee entitled us to a free coffee on the top floor (it was quite a strong coffee)... It is also the last stop in the Lonely Planet Shanghai walking tour... More

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
