Power Station of Art (Shànghǎi dāngdài yìshù bówùguǎn) Review
The site of the Shanghai World Expo was a barren wasteland until this massive contemporary art museum opened in late 2012. It did so with a bang, opening the ninth Shanghai Biennale and simultaenously hosting an exhibition from the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Rather than a permanent collection, the museum hosts one large-scale exhibition after another and is the city's new home for major touring exhibitions, like an Andy Warhol retrospective. Housed in a former power plant that's undergone serious renovation, this is a proper world-class museum with architectural cred to boot. It can be reached by a 15-minute walk from Xizang Nan Lu metro station.
