Shanghai is known for its glamor and outward appearance, but it also has a marginal subculture. The M50 Industrial Art Complex is a prime example of this, where galleries have been set up in obsolete factories and the cotton factory has dedicated a large space to display the works of emerging and contemporary Chinese artists. There is so much to see here, so plan for a good afternoon stroll around.
