On this art-ful day, we browsed some of the only surviving Chinese propaganda posters at the Shanghai Propaganda Poster Art Centre.
There was no photography allowed, but the museum went through a thorough history of 20th-century propaganda posters commissioned by the Chinese government. Functional art!
Later, we searched for M50, a tight-knit neighborhood of art galleries. On the way there, we found artists painting and adding graffiti to the neighborhood.
Once you get to M50, you have an all-access free pass to enter the art galleries of various artists and collectives. A few new-age artists combined traditional techniques with sensors and electronics.
