Jiangyin Road, starting from Huangpi North Road in the east to Chengdu North Road in the west. This neighborhood has a history of more than 100 years. Surrounded by Huangpi North Road, Nanjing West Road, Chengdu North Road, and Weihai Road, the block has modern architecture and traditional mansions.
From the Customs Club to the Huguo Temple, from Chen Xiaolong, who used to be Shuntianfu Yin, to Ge Fengchi, a wealthy merchant in Jiangyin, There have been many stories to be told. Jiangyin Road block has undergone great changes, but a lot of the buildings still kept the appearance of the past, bearing the memory of several generations of Shanghainese.
The exhibition takes a 1948 map of Jiangyin Road as a clue, outlining the development history and significant events, and finally forms a readable map superimposed with historical, architectural and cultural memories. We hope to make the boring history intriguing by adding detailed interpretations. In addition, the curatorial team has designed a series of education activities, and we hope to extend and deepen the content of the exhibition through lectures, workshops and city walks.
