In a sea of endless city, it’s satisfying to find a place where creative minds have a venue for expression. Shanghai has several art districts. M50 is by far my favorite. It can get weird and I like weird. I’ll take this trip. It is an incredibly unique experience and serves as a gathering point for artists across Asia to get their visions off the ground.
This area is actually a former industrial complex or factory. These old buildings have significantly large spaces for people with big (and small) ideas to play and explore.
This is a true statement.
This is true as well.
Some interesting exhibits are going on.
J. Gallery had a fascinating collection that examines the emotional response to collective consciousness and our paths to self-awareness.
It’s time to get physical. This exhibit has motion with the gate going up and down at times based upon randomness.
This is a collection of visual accounts of artists that performed alone in a shipping container for a long period of time. It is amazing to see the things that people will do when they begin to lose concept of time, light and space.
We are having fun taking a picture of a picture of us taking a picture taking a picture.
Ride the log.
Texture. Space. Color. Drift…..
Which way are we going?
It’s an exceptionally warm winter day in Shanghai. Is spring just around the corner? Perhaps not quite time to break out the sandals, shorts and skirts but we are surely getting closer!
M50 is a stone’s throw from the Shanghai Railway Metro station off of line 1. It is right over the river to the west of the big train station.
Oh…. and here is a Porsche. Some true artwork developed in Stuttgart, Deutschland.
