Moganshan Road Art District

50 Moganshan Road, also known as M50, is a right place to explore the fine Chinese contemporary art in Shanghai. Art Galleries get together at 50 Moganshan Road near the Suzhou Creek. The complex once was the lifeless old textile mills and changed into a cluster of galleries, studios and art workshops. Now, it has become the hottest art center in Shanghai, such as the 798 Art Community in Beijing.

M50 is a place for the art so only a few cafe houses, tea houses and restaurants set alongside the road. However, some fresh Shanghai fashion designers run their clothes shops and sell their own works at 50 Moganshan Road. It is a good chance to buy some new fashionable and artistic clothes as well.

really nice venue with kommune kind of feel to it. of course it is commercialised...but the artists andd galerists want to live too right? Still a very good location for an arty sunday afternoon :-) check out the souvenir-shop on the 2nd floor of the bar/restaurant.

Moganshan Rd offers a plethora of art in many forms including graffiti, photography, sculpture and much more. It is an easy 5 minute walk across the bridge from the nearest tube station. There are a huge variety of art styles here. One of my favourites was a small print block making establishment where designs were carved with wood and then the designs printed through a press. There was a very good represenation of recycled art and many inspiring art displays that showcased Chinese and international artists. There was a lovely 2 story book shop with wonderful books particularly of real aesthetic pleasure where Japanese books showing textile art.
