Building Culture: Check Out the New Art in Shanghai Tower
By | Photos Jin Qian Sep 7, 2018 Arts
Lujiazui, cultural center? It could happen. The newly opened Baoku Jiangxin Art Center might be an early step, occupying 2,000 square meters on the 38th floor of the Shanghai Tower and containing an impressive collection of Chinese arts and crafts, a tea house with a view, and an auction hall.

Owned by Baoku China, which also runs the "super vault" in the basement of the building, Baoku Jiangxin Art Center highlights 34 Chinese masters of arts and crafts for their opening exhibition. Entry is free with the stipulation that you follow their WeChat account.

The masters featured here are mostly born in the 1950s and 60s, and the exhibition covers a wide range: ceramics, jade, wood, and stone carvings, Suzhou-style embroidery, Buddhist thangka paintings as well as swords, all stunning to look at.

Baoku Jiangxin is discreet. It's quiet and well-ventilated, and sits one floor above the Guanfu Museum, which is also worth checking out. Is it a cultural center yet? No, but it’s certainly worth an afternoon for those with an eye for the Chinese arts.
