The Rockbund Art Museum burst onto Shanghai's art scene in May 2010 with an exhibition by the internationally-renowned Chinese artist, Cai Guo-Qiang.

The gallery is housed in an impressive building at the northern end of the Bund, a former home of the Royal Asiatic Society. British architect David Chipperfield has redesigned the interior to create a critically admired space for contemporary art.

The museum forms part of a collection of buildings, now known as the 'Rockbund Project' that reflect the diversity of the city's colonial architecture, combining European and Asian elements. The buildings are currently being renovated and will eventually accommodate hotels, shops and apartments.
