Also called the China Art Palace, the museum of modern and contemporary Chinese art is housed in the former China National Pavilion of the 2010 Shanghai World Expo in Pudong New Area.
The spectacular crimson museum in a traditional architectural style, was the architectural heart of the Expo and a major tourist attraction.
It’s vast, around 166,000 square meters, the largest art museum in Asia, and it’s rather isolated in an area yet to be developed into an art zone.
It was renovated to be a professional museum, but some visitors say there are too many tourists and the space is actually too big.
It features major international exhibitions, such as “Shanghai/Paris: Modern Art of China” and “China Dream, Thirty Years,” a photo exhibition by American Chinese photographer Liu Heung-shing.
