Editor's Description
Last updated: December 19, 2013

Opened in 2012, this massive contemporary art museum is housed in a stunning renovated power station, overlooking the Huangpu River. It's the new home of the Shanghai Biennial and hosts top-notch touring exhibitions from international institutions. It's free to get in, but check ahead during busy holiday times when you may have to reserve a free ticket in advance. More on that here

Fresh from its stint in Singapore, Cartier's traveling exhibition Time Art lands at Shanghai's Power Station of Art in July. On display will be over 180 timepieces charting the luxe brand's long history in watchmaking. The earliest on show - a stunning chatelaine number - dates from 1874, with other highlights including a series of Art Deco clocks embellished with white jade, onyx, coral and lots and lots of diamonds. The exhibition also features recent icons from the brand, all set alongside stunning photography.

One of China's best-known contemporary artists Cai-Guo Qiang is the subject of this not-to-be-missed solo show at Shanghai Power Station of Art. The Ninth Wave focuses on current global environmental and ecological crises through traditional Chinese aesthetics and philosophy. Expect Cai's signature 'gunpowder paintings' (as explosive as they sound), a lake of ink created inside the museum, and an installation comprising 99 wolves. More on that here.
