Product description

From industrial complex to international art district, Beijing 798 has become a symbol of urban change in China. This book canvases the district's insiders - architects, artists, curators, critics, galleryists, publishers, art professionals and non-profit workers, among others - to explore many of the issues facing the art district (and China as a whole) today: development plans, artistic freedoms, commercial controls, globalization, tradition, as well as modes of artistic experimentation and contemporary production. Against the backdrop of globalization and social change, the broad and penetrating discussion that unfolds in this book's texts and interviews offer critical insight and analysis into many of the issues that the district now faces and, in doing so, afford the reader glimpses into the possible futures of art, architecture and society in China.
