M50 is the name of the complex that has become the Moganshan Road Art District in Shanghai. Formerly a set of dilapidated warehouses, the complex, just south of Shanghai's Suzhou Creek, has been turned into the premier location for Shanghai's modern art movement.

You'll find all kinds of galleries displaying everything from what has become much-copied black and white portraits of Shanghai's urban development to bizarre statuary made from scrap metal. Many of our visitors to Shanghai have left the district with a reasonably-priced piece of art tucked under their arm.

  • Address: 50 Moganshan Road near Suzhou Creek.
