Gallery Show

The first gallery I visit in the 798 Art District is Gallery Show. The pathway to the gallery is already surreal.

The gallery's entrance. Notice a Maoist slogan in Chinese letters on the wall below the broken windows.

The gallery can be reached by walking up the staircase full of graffiti. Letters featured in this graffiti are Korean. This gallery appears to be owned by a Korean.

Above the graffiti remains the floor map used when the building was a weapon factory.

The gallery itself is well-curated. Below are two of the paintings that I like:

Wang Xiao Jin (2007) "Sister No.4"

Tang Jie (2007) "I'm not afraid No.1"
