Gallery/Dealer Details - Shanghart Gallery, Shanghai

A visionary source of Chinese contemporary art - ShanghART Gallery & H-Space

Over the course of the past decade, the Shanghai based gallery has acquired a substantial reputation for artistic innovation, integrity and high quality in dealing with contemporary Chinese art. ShanghART not only became the initial gallery from China participating in major international art fairs like Art Basel, FIAC and Art Basel Miami Beach, but enjoys also the great respect of being selected as the only gallery from China to be featured in "International Art Galleries, Post-War to Post-Millennium, a narrative chronology of the dealers, artists and spaces that have defined modern art" (Dumont, 2005)

Today ShanghART Gallery occupies two spaces (400m2 and 800m2 respectively) in two converted warehouses, and represents over 30 of China's most talented artists working with different media ranging from painting and sculpture to video art and performance..

Situated at 50 Moganshan Rd which has developed to become Shanghai's artistic centre, the main gallery (bldg 16) serves as a show room for displays of artworks and smaller exhibitions, while the larger H-Space (bldg 18) works as a flexible white-cube exhibition hall for the display of extensive shows and grand scale projects.The gallery's program aims to present innovative works in ways that expose the diverse, multi-disciplinary nature of contemporary culture. The exhibitions, realized in close cooperation with the artists, expand traditional notions of what art is and explore the rich amalgam of voices and cultures that continually shape China.

As a gallery, producer, supporter, and point of reference ShanghART contributes as a vital resource to the development of contemporary Chinese art. It also works as an archive of cultural thought and expression. The gallery's website is an extensive source of contemporary Chinese and its cultural and theoretical context.
