The Paris of the East, a Chinese revolutionary hotbed, San Francisco?s sister city, China?s financial capital: Shanghai is or was all of these. Throughout 2010, you?re invited to explore the vibrant and intriguing character and culture of Shanghai through performances, films, concerts, exhibits and discussions around the San Francisco Bay Area.
The unprecedented celebration, presented by dozens of diverse Bay Area organizations, demonstrates the region?s extraordinary relationship with China?s most cosmopolitan city. On the calendar are programs touching on Shanghai?s filmmaking industry, Jewish communities and history, music, Art Deco design, craftsmanship, urban development, fashion sense, contemporary art and other elements.
We hope you enjoy the Year of Shanghai by the Bay.
