Renovated from the architectural scraps of history, Shanghai's colossal art museums can leave quite an impression with its overall size . However, their art palaces can hardly overshadow the small private galleries snaked throughout the metropolis city. Over the years I found myself revisiting the same galleries due to the curator's eye for unique pieces, and also the way in which they presented them in order to evoke the artist's emotion. Below you can take a trip down my memory lane to some of my favorite galleries.
The labyrinth streets of Shanghai can lead to some fascinating discoveries and unforgettable memories. One of those memories took place on a sunny afternoon dressed to impress in wedges not befit for a long journey. After combing through the area several times over in search of Bank Gallery I crossed the street hoping a nearby security guard could assist me.
