A new museum is about to open its doors in Shanghai, China, with London’s famous Tate Gallery supporting the effort by sending over a collection of its major works for the launch.

Set to open on July 8, the Museum of Art Pudong (MAP) will have a particular focus on art from overseas, with inaugural exhibitions featuring some of history’s most well-known and important artists.

Light: Works from Tate's Collection will be the first exhibition organized as part of an ongoing partnership between Tate and MAP developer Shanghai Lujiazui Group. Works by Claude Monet, John Martin and Anish Kapoor will be among the 100 pieces on show.

The two organisations signed an agreement in 2019 to work together to ensure MAP’s future success, including the provision of training and expertise from Tate. Following the inaugural exhibition, two further exhibits have been agreed to bring more of the Tate collection to the new museum.

In addition to the support from the Tate, Spain’s Joan Miró Foundation is also working with MAP to make sure the new attraction opens to great fanfare.

A second exhibition will feature 69 works by the Spanish painter Joan Miró and marks the first time the Fundació Joan Miró has displayed its work in China.

Covering 54,000sq m (581,000sq ft) and seven storeys, the CN¥1.3bn (US$201m, €168.2m, £144.3m) museum is designed by Jean Nouvel and has a sleek and modern look, with glass halls and corridors that allow unobstructed views of the Huangpu River, as well as a 53-metre bridge that provides access to the riverside.

The development also features permanent and temporary use galleries of multiple heights, a theatre, a roof terrace with sculpture garden and restaurant, various food and beverage offerings, a library and staff offices, and large viewing gallery facing across the Bund.
