Capsule Shanghai

1st Floor, Building 16, 275 Nong

Capsule, the newest addition to Shanghai’s burgeoning contemporary art scene, opens its doors in October 2016. Located in the historic Former French Concession, the gallery is set is a stunning 1930’s garden house, away from the hustle and bustle, a haven in which to experience and enjoy art.
Committed to exhibiting the best of international and national contemporary art, by both established and emerging artists, Capsule proposes a less conventional gallery formula, acting as both gallery and art laboratory. Special focus is dedicated to artists who through their personal and professional trans-regional migrations are reshaping the borders of the current global art map. More than a place to show art, Capsule is also a lab, an experimental space geared to the unique rhythm and fast-changing dynamic of contemporary art in China. Here, creativity is ignited, as visitors are inspired to learn, to engage and to broaden their knowledge and appreciation of contemporary art.
