Shanghai, Pearl of the East

Reviving its golden days in the 1930s, Shanghai is grabbing the world’s attention again as the most dynamic metropolis in China. From the jaw-dropping skyscrapers in Lujiazui to numerous cosy cafés in the French Concession, this is where East meets West, traditional meets modern, and the grassroots coexists with the luxurious in harmony. Whether you’re a backpacker or a jetsetter, you can always find what suits you best.

Founded by a local returnee who lived for 12 years in Sydney, Eastlink used to be the most avant-garde of the city’s galleries, but it has been a little more hit-or- miss of late – in part because of its admirable dedication to showing young artists.

The strongest recent show was Body Talk, which featured conceptual artists, including Huang Yan, who paints Chinese landscapes on his body.
