INSPIRED || ART: The 798 Space in Beijing

One of the highlights of my trip to Beijing was my day-long visit to the 798 Space in the northeast area of the Chaoyang district.  What used to be an old manufacturing center comprised of countless alleys and warehouse structures, has transformed into Beijing's center for contemporary art. Intermingled with the galleries are little teahouses, coffee shops, bookshops, and clothing stores. I was just so amazed by the energy of the scene and the devotion to artistic expression. Each gallery celebrated something different and had its own vibe. I could have probably spent a 2nd and 3rd day there because there were so many exhibits to see.
