I recently visited Beijing and spent an afternoon in the historic 798 Art Zone, which is set amidst 50-year old decommissioned military factory buildings on the outskirts of the city. Now it’s a collection of art galleries, studios, and exhibits by local artists. Local specialties are painting, graffiti, and sculpture, and the star of the Art Zone is Ai Weiwei, China’s most respected, and notoriously anti-authoritarian, rebel artist.
