During Shanghai’s transformation into the post-industrial era – the city which has a long developed glass manufacturing business took the lead in remodelling these old industrial buildings. The Shanghai Glassware Factory was turned into the Shanghai Museum of Glass, with many of its original remnants still visible. The revival demonstrates how art and culture can be fostered from old, and often forgotten industrial landscapes.
Opened in 2011, the Shanghai Museum of Glass is listed as one of the three must-visit museums in China by a CNN-owned website. Shanghai Museum of Glass has presented impressive exhibitions over the past several years, from the academic glass art exhibition by domestic and international artists, the ancient glass themed exhibition, to Keep It Glassy series exhibition, and the cross-border “Annealing” series exhibition, started in 2015, fusing glass and contemporary art together mutually. In the Shanghai Museum of Glass, glass art and design crosses the border between time, space, culture and language, and is presented to the public audience in different cross-type forms.
Under the principle of Creating and Sharing Museum Aesthetic New Life, the Shanghai Museum of Glass founded the brand new and multi-functional Shanghai Museum of Glass Park. Developed from glass art and the museum into a complex of diverse buildings, the Park interprets, complements, and exhibits the physical and spiritual dimensions of glass from different layers and perspectives. Through the medium of glass, it also seeks to discover and expand the possibilities of the city’s cultural life. By blending the art and design exhibitions in the museum and entertainment programs in the other areas, the Park will offer a most vibrant and enriching art life.
Over the past 60 years, Shanghai has been through a massive transformation from its industrial age to today. The Shanghai Museum of Glass maintains the basic structure of the site’s existing factory, expressing its original details and creating a highly artistic and interactive space. To highlight the building’s previous function as a glass factory, there are several feature areas, including the Kaleidoscope Entrance, Corridor of History, and the House of Glass.
Nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion. This passion is intense perseverance; it is rational choice; it is the satisfaction of having a goal; it is the conviction that will create the future, is the optimism of idealism, is the motivation that enables one to transcend difficulties; it is the foundation on which success is won. It is this passion that enables us to realize the dream of opening a glass museum.Zhang Lin
