The newly opened Fotografiska will welcome the city’s hip crowd with a vibrant party, DJ performances, and a night tour of the museum’s four exhibitions on Friday.

Guests can tour the four-story warehouse, which has been converted into Fotografiska Shanghai, in the Suzhou Creek neighborhood. The exhibitions feature the works of four photographers, Feng Li, Edward Burtynsky, Fan Xi, and Samson Young, who capture the cultural legacies of both Eastern and Western traditions.

These works question conventional viewpoints while bridging the gap between large-scale documentary works and aesthetic experiences. This captivating, multidimensional visual feast will conclude at 11pm on Friday.

Guests can then head for the Night at the Museum, sipping cocktails at the private lounge or simply enjoying the river view from the terrace.
