One of the largest of its kind in China, M97 Gallery was established in 2006 in Shanghai, China’s financial capital and global city. Consistently exhibiting contemporary and fine art photography that spans all genres of the medium, M97 represents an eclectic range of important emerging and established artists working with photography. Located at No. 363 Changping Road in Shanghai, M97 has two exhibition spaces in a 1940s factory building in Jingan district, located on the first and second floor. The M97 Gallery is at the ground floor entrance of the building, and the Project Space is set against a backdrop of the city’s urban rooftops.
Both spaces of M97 have an active program of solo and group exhibitions, as well as regularly participating in Asian and international art fairs. In the 10 years since the gallery’s establishment, photography has evolved in a way that no one could have ever predicted, as it is now an extremely accessible medium. One which almost everyone believes they can universally understand as a visual language. M97 has been dedicated to helping set standards and expand understanding and appreciation for the history and art of photography in China.
M97 Gallery is committed to helping individual collectors, corporations and institutions collect photographic works and we are experienced in helping everyone from the first-time collector to museum and institutional collectors. With works from over 20 different Chinese and international artists in the gallery, M97 is one of Shanghai and China’s largest single sources for photography.
