West Bund Art & Design Fair 2017

The fourth edition of West Bund Art & Design will be holding from 10 - 12 Nov, 2017. Since its founding, it has become the premier Shanghai art fair destination, featuring the best of Chinese and international galleries.

This year, seventy leading galleries from around the globe participate in the West Bund Art & Design. Many of them have been instrumental to the success of the event since our founding in 2014. Additionally, the newly launched TALENT sector will present works by emerging artists in a series of solo exhibitions or specially curated group shows. Also returning this year is ArtReview Asia Xiàn Chǎng (the Chinese word for "on the spot", “at the site”) showcasing cutting-edge works by both Asian and international artists that are featured in designated public spaces both inside and outside the fair. Many of the works included in these special exhibitions have been created especially for the venue or exhibited for the first time in the region. 

Since its founding in 2014, the fair has continued to welcome and cultivate an exciting and diverse range of galleries, collaborating with museums and art institutions, as well as with design and innovative architectural studios. Presenting established and emerging artists from around the world, the West Bund Art & Design Fair exemplifies the thriving West Bund District that has rapidly become Shanghai’s distinguished cultural corridor and artistic enclave with its neighboring museums such as The Long Museum, the Yuz Museum, and SCôP (Shanghai Center of Photography). Alongside the West Bund Art & Design Fair, the growing cluster of galleries and artists’ studios that have established themselves in the area augments the progressive and dynamic energy of the West Bund District and the city of Shanghai. The second week of November has now become a citywide event extending to other exciting venues throughout Shanghai.
