Great connections made - Future exhibitions in store.
I have to admit it; Beijing took me by storm! This city is simply amazing and the Art district 798 艺术区 located in Dashanzi, Chaoyang District of Beijing is definitely a most visit. It is a 50-year old decommissioned military factory with buildings in unique architectural style. It all exploded in 2002, with scores of galleries, lofts, publishing firms, design companies, end-end tailor shops, cafés and fancy restaurants setting up In 2003, around 30 artist and organizations had set up studios or offices in the area, with 200 more on the waiting list to move in. I spent a couple of very succesful days touring the area, meeting interesting artists, viewing thriving projects and setting up good collaborations with gallery owners.
We are working on an exhibition with one of the artist whom I represent - so please stay tuned!
