Capsule, the newest addition to Shanghai’s burgeoning contemporary art scene, opened its doors in October 2016. Located in the historic Former French Concession, the gallery is set in a stunning 1930’s garden house, away from the hustle and bustle, a haven in which to experience and enjoy art.
Committed to exhibiting the best of international and China’s contemporary art, by both established and emerging artists, Capsule proposes a less conventional gallery formula, acting as both gallery and art laboratory. Special focus is dedicated to artists who through their personal and professional trans-regional migrations are reshaping the borders of the current global art map. More than a place to show art, Capsule is also a lab, an experimental space geared to the unique rhythm and fast-changing dynamic of contemporary art in China. Here, creativity is ignited, as visitors are inspired to learn, to engage and to broaden their knowledge and appreciation of contemporary art.
