This month, ART 24 HOURS is back for its second year over the weekend of Sat 23-Sun 24 March. During this city-wide art carnival, ticket holders can visit nearly a hundred of Shanghai's top galleries, museums, art spaces and design stores all with one single ticket.

The list of participating museums and exhibitions is pretty impressive and includes familiar names like Fosun Foundation Shanghai, Long Museum West Bund, Prada Rong Zhai, Rockbund Art Museum and Shanghai Center of Photograph as well as new partners Aurora Museum, Pearl Art Museum, and Shanghai Film Museum.
Be warned that some of the city's hottest exhibitions are already fully booked for that weekend (Yayoi Kusama's All About Love Speaks Forever
at Fosun Foundation and What Was I?
at Prada Rong Zhai), but you can still get your money's worth by checking out some other great exhibitions like Yu Hong at Long Museum Westbund, Oscar Murillo at chi K11, Erwin Olaf at SCoP
and Tobias Rehberger at Rockbund
, just to name a few. Reservations are also recommended if you plan on visiting Rain Room at Yuz Museum during that weekend as it'll likely fill up quickly.
In addition to the art fest, ticket holders can score discounts at various restaurants, shops and high-street brands during the weekend. The ticket is 158RMB or 238RMB if you’d like a glass of Perrier-Jouët champagne to help kick off your art marathon.
