About the Event

Following the “opening up” of port cities with the 1842 Treaty of Nanjing, foreign settlers began claiming concessions in and around Shanghai. From merchants to missionaries, one of the early settlers were the British, who staked their claims around the bund area, then known as the British settlement, which was merely a mud ditch at that time. While many of the original buildings near the bund on Huqiu Lu have been demolished and rebuilt, a few remain intact, such as the Rockbund Art Museum, originally a two-story building to house the first public library and natural history museum in Shanghai. Join Art Historian Julie Chun as she takes you back to the mid-1800s, where our story begins to trace the historical circumstances of the formation of Shanghai’s early learned society that also connects the current contemporary exhibition by the acclaimed Chinese contemporary artist Hu Yun. Don’t miss this enlightening afternoon of Shanghai’s local history and art.
