The Art Museum of Pudong (MAP) is located in the core area of Shanghai's Lujiazui riverfront, starting construction on September 26, 2017, and officially opening to the public in July 2021.
The MAP is invested, built, and operated by the Lujiazui Group and designed by Jean Nouvel (AJN), with international art exhibition and exchange as the main focus and domestic art exhibition as well, highlighting the four major functions of exhibition, aesthetic education, cultural creation and international exchange, dedicated to building a new landmark of international cultural venues and an important platform for international art exchange in Shanghai.
The material used in the MAP, Shandong white marble, outlines the white territory, whether it is the exterior walls, rooftops, bridges, gardens, or interior floors and walls, this stone is used, but through different polishing methods to build a different texture.
When entering the interior of the museum, "suprematism" is always present. The white walls are like paper, creating pure geometric forms, black straight lines, diagonal lines, and cross lines.
MAP is a 39,724-square-meter building with four floors above ground and two underground, including 13 exhibition halls of various sizes. In addition to the two "mirror halls" facing the Bund, the "X Gallery", which runs 30 meters across the four floors, is also a feature.
Exhibitions & Events
Zeng Fanzhi: Old and New is curated within the remarkable and unique architectural space of the Museum. It takes full account of the fascinating interactive effects that emerge when the audience engages with the medium of painting. Through extensive testing of the relationship between the exhibition space and the artworks, over 60 pieces of the artist's most iconic works created in the past 35 years have been thoughtfully chosen. These works are grouped into four interrelated yet distinctive sections, namely: The Early Years, Different Paths, Painting as Contemplation, and finally, Monumentals. They strive to offer the audience four unique viewing experiences.
The new exhibition Xu Bing: Gravitational Arena opened officially on August 12th, 2022 in the Exhibition Hall X of Museum of Art Pudong (MAP). This exhibition was produced by the Lujiazui Group and organized by MAP. Composed of 1,600 metal Square Word Calligraphy characters, with a visual depth of more than 50 meters, this giant installation was tailored by artist Xu Bing for the Exhibition Hall X at MAP, a unique art space across the globe. It is another astonishing piece of commissioned work exhibited at the Museum since its opening.
The exhibition The Shape of Time: Art and Ancestors of Oceania from The Metropolitan Museum of Art is produced by the Lujiazui (Group) Co., Ltd., and co-organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) and Museum of Art Pudong (MAP). The exhibition marks the first time that MAP collaborates with The Met, a world-renowned art institution. Meanwhile, it is also the first time ever that an exhibition taken entirely from The Met's collection has come to Shanghai, China, adding extraordinary historical significance to the event.
The Shape of Time centers around The Met's Oceanic art collection, showing the exuberant and diverse culture of Oceania. Divided into three main sections: Voyaging, Ancestors and Time, the exhibition displays more than 110 valuable artworks from the past four centuries.
Encompassing the arts and cultures of the Pacific Islands, The Met's collection of Oceanic art comprises over 2,800 works that reflect the rich history of creative expression and innovation that is emblematic of the region.
Ever Since joining in The Met's permanent collection, these treasures of Oceania have never left New York. The exhibition The Shape of Time represents the first time after about half a century that these works will travel out of country, and MAP is honoured to be the first stop of this historic voyage.
Produced by Shanghai Lujiazui (Group) Co., Ltd. and co-organized by Museum of Art Pudong (MAP) and Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza of Madrid, The Greats of Six Centuries: Masterpieces from the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza will open to the public on June 22, 2023.
The exhibition features a selection of 70 paintings from the collection of Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza, spanning six centuries. Those paintings present a spectacular view of Western art from the Renaissance to Post-War European and American Art, leading viewers to gain insights into how the lifestyles and social landscape of the Western world have evolved over the past six hundred years.
The exhibition brings together the works of many great masters, including Raphael, Pieter Hendricksz de Hooch, Peter Paul Rubens, Canaletto, Édouard Manet, Vincent van Gogh, Marc Chagall, and Georgia O'Keeffe. Meanwhile, a wide range of painting styles and genres from different times are included, such as Renaissance Portraiture, the Golden Age of Painting in the Netherlands, Vedutismo, French Realism and Impressionism, Expressionism and Cubism, Pop Art, Abstract Art, Russian Avant-garde, and American Realism.
Highlights of the exhibition include Portrait of a Young Man, The Stevedores in Arles, Venus and Cupid, Horsewoman Full-Face (L'Amazone). This is the first time Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza of Madrid presents its collections in China and marks the first large-scale oversea exhibition since its establishment.
From June 9, 2023, Museum of Art Pudong will host the first large-scale comprehensive retrospective of the work of photographer Liu Heung Shing, titled "Liu Heung Shing Lens·Era·People". Located on the fourth floor of the museum, the exhibition presents nearly 200 iconic photographic works covering the themes of historical events, portraits of social people, and the real daily life of people in different countries in a specific period. These works are organized in seven sections: "Face", "Body Language", "Timing the Moment", "Benchmarks", "Crowds", "Place", and "Archive". A scene of action will also be recreated onsite to showcase one of Liu’s special photo developing experience, vividly restaging how news images were created, selected and disseminated in his time.
