Shanghai West Bund is an urban branding and development project that aims to build upon the cultural and commercial foundation of the Xuhui waterfront. The area itself has come to be commonly known as "Shanghai West Bund." Following are some of the exhibitions by prominent art galleries located there, take a look:


'VESSEL', Arario Gallery

3 November 2017 – 7 January 2017

In the second solo show for the recognized international artist Kohei Nawa in China, the exhibition presents a comprehensive view of the large-scale installation, Vessel, by combining 20 sculptural figures on a 24-meter long stage with special designed sound effects. Vessel extracts sculptural performing physiques and transforms them into a sculpture group concealing gender and identity. It blends various fascinating moments and represents into a collective installation, as well as, converts the figurative bodies into abstract shapes and encompasses with sounds. Ultimately, the installation widens the visual experience, which goes beyond dynamic motions and static states.

'Refresh, Sacrifice, New Hygiene, Infection, Clean, Robot, Air, Housekeeping, www.ayibang.com, Cigarette, Dyson, Modern People', Edouard Malingue Gallery

11 November 2017 – 7 January 2018

This is an exhibition by the Taiwanese artist, Chou Yu-Cheng. The name of the project came about from the juxtaposition of several keywords, referencing Jean Baudrillard’s interest in modern objects—especially new objects—in The System of Objects, while at the same time tending towards the poetic.

'Shanghai Dandy', Don Gallery

10 November 2017 – 7 January 2018

In celebration of its 10th anniversary, Don Gallery presents a group exhibition - 'Shanghai Dandy'. By means of mega-metaphor, the phrasing of the title assumes the superimposition of a semantic pun and a phonetic pun to imply the cultural philosophy that Don persists—looking for a new vernacular for innovation, leading the delivery of cutting-edge ideas in contemporary art, and embracing the boundless vigor within.

'Yu Youhan: The Representational and The Abstract', Shanghart, West Bund

10 November 2017 – 15 January 2018

This will be the artist’s first solo exhibition at ShanghART Gallery since 2004. The exhibition focuses on exhibiting Yu Youhan’s latest works after his retrospective exhibition at the Power Station of Art Shanghai in 2016, as well as early works seen for the first time. From a set of paintings inspired by packing boxes to works of “realism” depicting the surface of the moon, the techniques used in his new works continue to capture the temperament of returning to a primal “clumsiness”. But an impressive variety is demonstrated in these new works, revealing the humourous psyche of the artist and the way he earnestly practices his philosophy of closely connecting art to life.

'Cat Olympics: in memory of Torajiro', OTA Fine Arts

8 November 2017 – 7 January 2018

The exhibition marks Nobuaki Takekawa, a Japanese Artist's, first solo presentation in China. The exhibition will feature an installation of the cat's Olympic Games, including woodblock printing, cats sculptures from pottery and other cat-related works. Cats appear in different scenes such as stadiums, soccer fields and swimming pools. This is to commemorate the artist's late cat - Erlang, who unfortunately lost its life a year ago due to a traffic accident. He hoped that this work will allow his audience to reflect upon the social issues prevailing the world and the impact the Olympic Games have on humanity.
