Art Deco Shanghai 2015
The World Congress on Art Deco

You can’t walk down a Shanghai street without seeing Art Deco.

Shanghai Art Deco celebrates this cosmopolitan style that is all around us: adorning historic buildings and futuristic ones (we call it “Deco Echo”); alive in a thousand incarnations, from graphic design to furniture, films to fashion, art to chandeliers and glassware.

Art Deco and modernism experts from around the world and here in Shanghai will speak on Shanghai’s unique Art Deco, covering from architecture to nightlife, typography, design, furniture, grand hotels, and much more. Walking tours around the city will visit legendary buildings and hidden gems in five areas: the Bund, the former French Concession, “Around the Racetrack” (Nanjing Road) and “Bubbling Well Road” (Jing’an).
