ShanghART M50, Bldg.16, 50 Moganshan Rd., Putuo District, Shanghai




For the first time, ShanghART M50 opens three exhibition zones inside the building at the same time, which creates a circinate viewing route to challenge the traditional understanding of the main exhibition room. Works from 24 art groups will be randomly exhibited in different areas, inviting the audience to explore a wider variety of possibilities.

The exhibition title ganga (Awkward), which originated from Chinese south-eastern dialects with a meaning of incomplete or sneaky”, gradually evolved into a common Mandarin expression. Beyond the semantic expression of its pause, buffer, transformation, and adjustment, it reflects issues about capital, knowledge, authority, rebellion, and boundaries in the contemporary art world. As young artists try to pursue stable cultural identities, their art-creations are permeating with awkwardness in self-recognition. How can the new generation of artists, who are struggling at the verge of the market system, gain momentum and opportunities to take part in the ecology of the art world. 

The exhibition invites artists to start with any clues from the past, and respond to one or multiple topics about the phenomena and status of awkwardness. Through their responses to these problems, either confrontational or adaptive, the new generation of artists attempts to reflect the current artistic environment, discusses personal identity and social relationships within the contemporary art ecology, and provides new possibilities.

关于Carte Blanche

Carte Blanche是香格纳M50自2017年起由艺术家自主策划的展览单元。来源于法语短语“无限自主决定权;无限制的自主权利”,可解释为“无条件的授权;全权委托权;许可做任何你选择做的事情”。展览项目如同一张白纸,全权委托艺术家策展或创作,探索无限的可能性。

About FAS

FAS is an experimental art project initiated by YELL Space and artists. FASis from the first three letters from the Chinese words “fasheng (happening), fasan (spreading), fasheng (voicing), fashe (transmitting),” and also English meanings of “Fast, fascinate, fasten, and free art space”.

FAS is the collaboration between the most energetic and experimental young artists while building the present ecology of the art-world together. We hope that Yell space will become a main platform to provide more opportunities for exploration、experiment and communication for young artists from all over the country even around the world

About Carte Blanche

Carte Blanche is an exhibition program curated by artists at ShanghART M50since 2017. The name originated from the French phrase “unlimited discretionary power to act; unrestricted authority”, which could also be explained as “unconditional authority; full discretionary power; permission to do something in any way you choose to do it”. The exhibition is like a piece of blank paper, fully consigned to the artists to curate or create and explore the limitless possibility.


Yell Space is a non-profit art space located in Shanghai M50 art zone. It serves as the third platform aiming to create an independent, liberal and open platform for the artists. We hope to have the place as a gathering space where artists can share thoughts and present works.




Founded in 1996, ShanghART Gallery is one of the first contemporary art galleries established in China. With spaces in Shanghai, Beijing, and Singapore, ShanghART has been a driving force of the development of Chinese contemporary art for the past twenty years. Working closely together with over 40 artists, ShanghART regularly participates in the major international art fairs and collaborates with important art institutions in China and from all over the world. Artists including Zeng Fanzhi, Yuyouhan, Gengjianyi, Ding Yi, Zhang Enli, Yang Fudong, Yang Zhenzhong, Xu Zhen, Zhang Ding, and Sun Xun etc.
