ShanghART Gallery was founded in 1996 in Shanghai. It has since grown to become one of China’s most influential art institutions and a vital resource to the development of contemporary art in China, with two spaces in Shanghai (ShanghART Shanghai and ShanghART M50), and a gallery space in Beijing (ShanghART Beijing). Today, it represents over 40 artists.
Being recognized for its importance, ShanghART is a forerunner among Chinese galleries in participating in major international art fairs like Art Basel and Fiac, Paris. ShanghART also enjoys the great privilege of being among the 75 most influential galleries selected in Thames & Hudson’s publication "International Art Galleries: Post-war to Post-millennium."
ShanghART Gallery's first overseas gallery, ShanghART Singapore, opened in 2012 in the city's vibrant art zone in Gillman Barracks. ShanghART Singapore is dedicated to better serve the artists, as well as to encourage enlightening exhibitions, with spiritual and aesthetic dialogues.
