Xu Bing : Gravitational Arean  2022-08-12 - 2023-08-01

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.

As an unprecedented spectacular installation, Gravitational Arena takes the most advantage of the Exhibition Hall X's spatial features rather than being simply "placed" in the exhibition space. A colossal vortex of characters is formed in the hall, stretching to the ground from more than 30 meters high. Apart from the tensions and contortions caused by gravitation, the characters are reflected by a big mirror on the floor, thus prominent is the mutual "penetrating" sensation of depth between the artwork and the space.


The Dynamic Eye: Op and Kinetic Art from the Tate Collection 

2022-09-30 - 2023-05-21

On September 30, 2022, Museum of Art Pudong (MAP) opens its new exhibition The Dynamic Eye: Op and Kinetic Art from the Tate Collection on the 2nd floor. The exhibition brings together nearly 120 artworks, spanning various media like painting, relief, screenprint, sculpture, installation and video, revisiting Op and Kinetic Art from a global perspective. The exhibition is co-organized by MAP and Tate, and produced by Lujiazui (Group) Co., Ltd.

Op Art – short for optical art – emerged during the 1950s and 1960s. Many artists started to bring ideas from mathematics, scientific research and colour theory into their work. Simple lines, geometric shapes, and eye-popping colour were combined to create optical effects and illusions. Kinetic Art was closely associated with Op Art, encompassing art utilising motors, moving elements and sources of energy to challenge art as a static form.

The exhibition includes 11 sections and the concourse. It weaves together artists closely associated with these movements, such as Jesús Rafael Soto, Victor Vasarely, Alexander Calder, as well as their predecessors and contemporary practitioners. The exhibition touches upon important groups of artists who chose to work together, such as GRAV, Zero, Signals, New Tendencies, as well as exhibitions that were foundational to the development of Op and Kinetic Art, like Le mouvement (1955, Paris), and The Responsive Eye (1965, New York). Organized in a non-linear, non-chronological fashion, the exhibition reframes Op and Kinetic Art as tendencies embraced by artists throughout different times, geographies and cultural contexts. What they share is a deep interest in stimulating the viewer’s eye and perception while taking art into new dimensions.

Curated by Clara Kim, The Daskalopoulos Senior Curator, International Art with Matthew Watts, Curatorial Assistant, Collection Exhibitions. The project is managed by Katie Chester, Project Manager, Collection Exhibitions.



Design for Fun - Italian Contemporary Design  2022-09-28 - 2022-12-31


Museum of Art Pudong (MAP)'s new exhibition for fall 2022, Design for Fun - Italian Contemporary Design opens on September 28, 2022. The exhibition is produced by Lujiazui (Group) Co., Ltd., organized by MAP, and supported by the Consul General of Italy in Shanghai, the Italian Cultural Institute of Shanghai, R.P. of China as well as MondoMostre S.r.l.


The exhibition is located at exhibition halls 4A and 4B of MAP, and it is divided into thirteen sub-units, altogether presenting a pyrotechnic display which focuses on the greatest Italian designs created over the last seventy years. The exhibition develops on a path marked by a succession of thematic modules, each defined by a cluster of objects that interpret and explicate the subject. They are timeless and without borders, having origins in iconic presences and moving toward derivations and evolutions. No module exhausts its own theme but instead suggests its boundaries and ingredients.


In the order of exhibition viewing, the thirteen units are respectively " The Joyful Tragedy of Living", " To See, To Be Seen", "Theoretical Objects", " Fragile but Eternal", "The Soft Shape", "Trapping Light in Color", "Simplicity as an Ornament", "A Second Nature", "Playing Seriously", "Future-Proof", "The Face and the Soul", "Nomadic Design", and "Daily Rituals." The exhibition includes many classic pieces designed by world-renowned designers, such as Ettore Sottsass, Cleto Munari, Alessandro Mendini, Philippe Starck, Vico Magistretti and Barnaba Fornasetti. Among them, some have works scattered throughout the exhibition hall, spanning across multiple modules, which is a key indication of their multi-faceted talents in various segments of the design field.



The exhibition Design for Fun - Italian Contemporary Design is is conceived and designed by world-famous Italian designer Aldo Cibic, who is the co-founder of the Memphis Group and an honorary professor at Tongji University, along with Joseph Dejardin from Cibic Workshop. It is co-curated by Italian architect, design and architectural historian and critic Enrico Morteo, architectural historian and critic, Prof. Maria Vittoria Capitanucci of Politecnico di Milano, and board member of International Award for Art Criticism (IAAC), Prof. Ling Min from the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art History at Shanghai Academy of Fine Arts.


A World of Beauty - Masterpieces from the National Archaeological Museum of Naples   2022-12-21 - 2023-04-09


In addition to the current three exhibitions at the Pudong Art Museum, the annual closing exhibition "Stunning Lands: Treasures from the National Archaeological Museum of Naples" will be grandly opened on December 21, 2022. THE EXHIBITION IS CO-ORGANIZED BY THE PUDONG ART MUSEUM AND THE NATIONAL ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM OF NAPLES, ITALY. As part of the series of events of the "2022 China-Italy Year of Culture and Tourism", the exhibition "Stunning Beauty" has received strong support from the Consulate General of Italy in Shanghai, the Cultural Section of the Consulate General of Italy in Shanghai, MondoMostre and the Experimental Image Center.


As one of the most important archaeological museums in the world, the National Museum of Naples has the most complete collection of Roman sculpture and frescoes in Pompeii. This exhibition is the first large-scale collaboration between the National Archaeological Museum of Naples and a Chinese institution of modern and contemporary art. It is not only a grand display of the ancient Roman civilization 2,000 years ago, but many of the national treasures and precious exhibits have left Italy for the first time to participate in overseas exhibitions. The exhibition includes sculpture, painting, mosaics, frescoes, bronzes and glassware, and will reproduce the brilliant civilization of ancient Rome from different aspects.


Exhibition highlights Spanning more than 2,000 years, the exhibition is divided into three sections according to different themes: "love and beauty", "power and beauty" and "home and beauty", presenting a total of more than 70 rare treasures. Most of them originated from ancient Rome more than 2,000 years ago, and there are also many Italian national treasures.


Remains of an ancient city under a volcano 


The exhibition presents many remains such as murals unearthed in the ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. In 79 AD, a massive eruption of Mount Vesuvius destroyed the once-flourishing Pompeii and its surrounding city of Herculaneum overnight. However, a large amount of volcanic ash has also preserved the remains of these two cities, and these rare and precious ruins have only been able to come from Italy today.


Meet the century of well-known authentic works 


One of the highlights of the exhibition, The Pseudo-Seneca Head, often referred to in art books, is one of the most skilled and famous of all the busts recognized as Seneca in existence. For art students, it is also one of the classic images that must be copied.


Greek and Roman gods combined 


A large number of ancient Roman sculptures rarely gather together and sit on the banks of the Huangpu River. Headed by Venus, the goddess of love and beauty, other highlight sculptures include: Diana, the goddess of moonlight, Athena, the goddess of wisdom, Apollo, the sun god, Hercules and many other mythological characters.


The exhibition was designed by Aldo Cibic and Joseph Dejardin from the Cibic Workshop, and was designed by Francesco D'Arelli, Director of Italian Culture in Shanghai, Dr. Mario Grimaldi, Italian archaeologist and Clara Tossi, an Italian historian of applied arts. Co-curated by Clara Tosi Pamphili.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Can I choose a specific seat?

    Unfortunately, no. Ticketing systems in China vary from venue to venue, and many are not advanced enough to offer specific seat selection. The event promoters and venues that we work with currently have no systems in place that allow third party ticketing agents to access their respective floors plans. However, whenever you buy a ticket from us, you will automatically receive the best available seats within the category you've selected. Sometime the tickets price categories' name won't be matched on the actually physical tickets. But the value will be the same you choose.

  • How do I pay for my tickets?

    We have a couple of payment options available; 1. Online Payment: We now support WeChat and Alipay for online purchases. Simply scan the QR the payment page directs you to. 2. Cash/Card on Delivery: You can also pay our delivery staff directly either in cash, or with a local UnionPay card. Overseas clients can also pay via bank transfer, however, you’ll need to send us an email so we can sort out bank info and e-invoice. If you need a fapiao for your purchase, then please email us the relevant details (company title, tax number and your order number) .

  • What happens if the show gets cancelled? Will I get my money back?

    Yes, SmartTickets always refunds ticket purchases if a show gets cancelled. This guarantee is one of the reasons that people choose to purchase through SmartTickets instead of less reliable sources. Please note, though, that we only refund the face value of the tickets.

  • I live outside Shanghai, how can I get my tickets?

    We can deliver the tickets to you through Shunfeng Express if you are located outside Shanghai. For this option, purchase the tickets online using Alipay or WeChat.

However, the delivery address must be in Shanghai, for example, to a hotel. For more details, please contact us.

  • Oops! I missed the online payment QR code the first time!

    If you missed your payment QR code, you can find it again on the Order Status page. Enter your booking code and email address, then click the big green "Pending Payment" button. Please note: online payment orders will automatically be canceled if the payment is not completed within 30 mins.

  • Can I pay online with a credit card?

    Unfortunately, no. We've been working to implement an online payment system, which should be available soon! The nature of risk management and licensing issues with online payments made within China makes it a particularly delicate process.

  • If I lose my ticket, can I get a replacement?

    Unfortunately, all physical tickets are not replaceable. The concert venues have fixed seat numbers, and to avoid conflicts caused by duplicate tickets with the same seats, ticketing agencies and promoters are not permitted to print tickets twice.
