Zendai Contemporary Art Space

Located in Wuwei Creative Complex in northeast Shanghai and covering an area of over 3,000sqm, the 3-storeyed Zendai Contemporary Art Space consists of galleries, art studios, mini theatre, archive, terrace and square.
With a focus on large-scale contemporary artwork, the space is designed to create a new platform for the display and exchange of international contemporary art. Different from traditional art museums and galleries, the ambition of Zendai Contemporary Art Space is to present a brand new way of art promotion, which will include: displaying artwork, academic research, international exchanges, public library, etc.
Featuring visionary art and an open attitude, the space aims to encourage communication and collaboration among art institutes, artists, curators and critics, both from China and from abroad, and to advance and encourage the development of Chinese contemporary art.

Introduction of Wuwei Creative Complex
Shanghai Fifth Chemical Fibre Plant Creative Industry Space (Wuwei Creative Space) was formerly Shanghai Huafeng First Cotton Textile Mill. It was established in 1946 by the Chinese entrepreneur Qiang Xilin. In 1954, it became a public-private partnership, and was passed into state-owned Shanghai Thirty-second Cotton Textile Mill in 1966. In 1971, it started to specialize in the production of chemical fiber and was renamed as Shanghai Fifth Chemical Fibre Plant. Since 2007, the plant area has been transformed into a creative complex. Now, there are nearly 20 studios for artists, architectural designers and photographers, etc.
