San Francisco Welcomes Shanghai

At the moment, Shanghai is welcoming the nations at a World Expo, and San Francisco, which has the largest Chinese population beyond China, is welcoming Shanghai!

“Shanghai” is presently at the Asian Museum of San Francisco, which is not in San Francisco’s Chinatown, but is closer to the Civic Center. At this prestigious museum, you can explore 6,000 years of Asian Art. And, this exhibition is the first of its kind to explore the unique flavor and identity of China’s most cosmopolitan city.

Shanghai is San Francisco’s “sister-city” and is the original case-study in cultural globalization. Shanghai is now starting its 4th century as such, with the West.

The exhibition investigates the internal and external influences that helped to create the city’s distinctive multicultural character. The exhibition includes 190 artworks from: trade oil paintings, Shanghai deco furniture and rugs, traditional clothing, silver work, revolutionary poster art, fashion, movie clips, contemporary art and video installations.

“Shanghai” is the cornerstone of the San Francisco Bay Area’s Shanghai Celebration, which is a series of programs and exhibitions presented by local cultural organizations on the occasion of the Shanghai World Expo 2010.
