Iberia Center for Contemporary Art

On the southern edge of the 798 District stands the Iberia Center for Contemporary Art. (E10 in the District map.)

The Center features a Chinese artist Li Qing.

Li Qing (2007) "Images of Partial Unity - Nanjing"

Displaying two pictures side by side with a few differences between the two characterizes most of Li's works.

Li Qing (2008) "Ping-pong No.2"

Red dots on the ping-pong table indicate where red-inked ping-pong ball landed during the ping-pong play between a player on the side with a map of China and the other player on the side with a map of the world.

The Iberia Center also houses a cafe with nice decor, great food that is NOT Chinese (including Spanish omelets, Thai chicken curry, and a decent cup of coffee), and wireless internet connection for free of charge.
