798 Art Zone Exhibition

Mathers Museum of World Cultures

Just after the turn of the 21st century, artists and cultural entrepreneurs began colonizing a former military factory complex in northeast Beijing. Taking its name from that numbered factory, the 798 Art Zone is an urban arts colony that now attracts visitors from around China and the world. This visual tour introduces the district and offers a glimpse of a compelling place that is both visually saturated and reflective of the state of contemporary arts and society in present-day China.

Opening reception will be on April 6, 7-8:30 pm.

This event is part of the Indiana University Arts and Humanities Council’s “China Remixed” initiative. To learn more about this initiative and other events in the series, please visit their website here.
