While visiting Shanghai, join this tour of 50 Moganshan Road, or M50, and witness incredible works of art by Shanghai’s talented contemporary artists. Once simply a site of rundown and abandoned warehouses, this area next to Suzhou Creek has today drawn nearly 100 artists, who’ve set up residences, galleries and studios exhibiting their work.
With your enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, tour the large complex -- a maze of workshops and galleries housed in a series of buildings -- and admire a variety of artwork including graffiti, photography, paintings, sculptures, furniture and more.
Visit several established art galleries like Eastlink, housing several of the city’s most controversial exhibitions, and BizArt, a non-profit foundation promoting the work of young artists. As you explore the complex, admire the way the shabby warehouses provide an interesting backdrop to the modern art pieces in a sort of chic, old-meets-new atmosphere.
Best of all, your guide will also introduce you to a few of the community’s artists to discuss the major styles and trends of contemporary Chinese art.

We met Janny at M50, we had an interesting afternoon strolling around the galleries. Janny was very friendly and made the visit enjoyable. If we had not done this tour I think we would have trouble locating this area and all the galleries inside. An enjoyable afternoon.
