The Xinqiao Art Zone of Songjiang District is being seen as the ideal environment for art, design and creativity among 100 artists and art institutions, thus becoming the city's largest base for the arts and culture industry.

According to Qiao Wei, the zone's art director, the place is quiet, clean, cozy and not too far from downtown Shanghai. He adds that the Xinqiao Art Zone might be the ideal place for artists and designers to get inspiration.

The 310,000-square-meter zone comprises more than 100 buildings of different functions, such as individual work studios, galleries, museum, library, exhibition halls, auction houses, antique shops, art foundations and design companies.

The Xinqiao Art Zone also values antique collections and traditional Chinese art. Future plans for the zone include developing a new industrial chain, including online art dealing, an art bazaar, art derivatives and an art copyright agency. Read the Entire Article
