Established in 2014 and now in its fifth iteration, West Bund Art & Design 2022 is now open for your artsy edification and diversion. A bit smaller in scope than in previous years (for reasons you can imagine), this international art show is still assembling around 100 of the world’s leading galleries, representing artists working in Europe, Asia, North American, Latin America, and beyond. Along with Art 021 running at the same time -- which has incidentally just been cancelled -- this is one of the major art events of the year in Shanghai with the world’s leading gallery spaces descending on town to show their stuff.
So about those tickets: the show is for industry types to move some units and, as such, it's invite only. Have you received your invite? If you positively need to go, though, like ever year, there are enterprising ladies and gentlemen outside the venue selling tickets on the sly. But you didn't hear that from us!
If you're on the outside looking in, here's a photo tour of the show.
