Power Station of Art

Across the Huangpu River from the China Art Palace sits one of Shanghai’s newest art venues recently converted from the Pavilion of the Future, a former part of the 2010 World Expo. Today it is known as the Power Station of Art (Shànghǎi Dāngdài Yìshù Bówùguǎn, 上海当代艺术博物馆) or PSA, named to reflect the PS1 Museum in New York.

As China’s very first state-run museum, this new artistic platform hopes to bridge a connection between post-1980 contemporary art and the masses.

The Power Station of Art currently houses this year’s Shanghai Biennale, which runs through March 31, 2013. Exhibitions planned for the future include “Created in China,” a collection of Chinese contemporary art from the past 30 years, an Andy Warhol retrospective and others exhibitions by international artists.
