798 Art Zone

Last weekend I was at Beijing for a field trip. There I visited the 798 Art District. The area contains many contemporary art exhibitions, as well as small boutiques. The 798 is divided into 5-6 different smaller zones, and to go through all of them would take a whole day (if not more).

There, I looked at the Ho Chi Minh Trail, which is a project that is created to connect the art of Vietnam, Cambodia, and China. Even though the idea is very good, the exhibition seems to be quite low budget since there were only a few documentary videos and no artworks displayed.

I also went to the Ullens Center. Unfortunately I only had time to look at one exhibition by

I checked out several boutiques and bought a music box at the end.
