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.

Venues

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

Ages of Splendor: A History of Spain in the Museo del Prado, co-organized by Museo Nacional del Prado and Museum of Art Pudong (MAP), opens to the public on April 23, 2024. The exhibition marks the largest presentation of Museo del Prado's collection in China in terms of scale. It is also one-of-a-kind in terms of content, as MAP stands to be the only institution in the whole world to hold this special project. The exhibition runs through September 1, 2024.

The exhibition features a selection of 70 masterpieces from the collection of Museo del Prado, among which 16 pieces have never been on view outside of Spain, and 9 have never been loaned out from the museum before. Over half of the works are shown for the very first time in Asia. Spanning from the 16th to 20th centuries, Ages of Splendor puts on view masterpieces by nearly 50 remarkable artists in the history of European art, including works by Titian, Veronés, El Greco, Rubens, Zurbarán, Velázquez, Murillo, Ribera, Goya, Fortuny and Sorolla.

Structured around different accounts, the exhibition consists of one special section entitled "In Focus" and 10 complementary themed rooms. "In Focus" features one of the most significant works of Museo del Prado – the Prado's Mona Lisa, which is believed to be the earliest known studio copy of Leonardo's masterpiece. Complemented by multimedia installations and archival materials, "In Focus" sheds light on the intricate interconnections between the Prado's Mona Lisa and the original at the Louvre. Through the 10 complementary themes such as "The Celebrations in the Spanish Court", "The Nobility, the Bourgeoisie and the Royalty in the Spanish Territories", "Thought and Spirituality", "Sacred Images as Everyday Images" and "The Beauty of Everyday Objects: The Still Life", visitors are introduced to Spain's social, political and historical evolution over nearly 500 years, from the reign of Charles V to the start of the 20th century. There is also a particular focus on the evolution of specific artistic genres such as mythology, dwarf, still life and religious painting, each of them the subject of specific rooms, of which the space devoted to mythology is particularly striking as it evokes the "Sala Reservada" (private room) that existed in the Prado during its early years. It's also worth noting that there are in total 8 masterpieces by Goya on view, making him the artist with the largest number of works in this exhibition.

2024 marks the 100th anniversary of the publication of the Surrealist Manifesto, written by poet André Breton. Fantastic Visions: 100 Years of Surrealism from the National Galleries of Scotland, organized by Museum of Art Pudong (MAP) with the National Galleries of Scotland, will open to the public on February 2, 2024.

This exhibition, drawn entirely from the collection of the National Galleries of Scotland, contains over 100 major works by over 50 artists, including some of the world's most important surrealists like Salvador Dalí, René Magritte, Max Ernst, Joan Miró, Leonora Carrington, and Dorothea Tanning. All the artworks on display, ranging from painting, sculpture, frottage, collage, photography, manuscripts, and books, are presented in China for the first time.

Taking a journey through the history of the Surrealist movement, the exhibition guides the audience from its early origins to the centennial celebration. Divided into three sections, Fantastic Visions presents vivid pictures of the development of Surrealism throughout the 20th century. Moreover, on the 4th floor of the museum, there's a specially designed area for visitors to further interact with Surrealism and take fun pictures.

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.
