798 Art District in Beijing

Fri, 2013-01-04 02:24 | By Anonymous (not verified)

Anyone who saw the Olympics may have gotten a sense of the sophistication of Beijing. Whatever TV can show, it’s nothing compared to the lived experience in China’s capitol city. From its wide boulevards, to trendy shopping areas seemingly without end, to skyscrapers that appear to spring up overnight, Beijing is a city relentlessly on the move. Compared to Nanjing, everything is bigger, wider, fancier, though Nanjing has the edge in pedestrian, bike and motor scooter traffic. Beijng is a car, bus and metro culture.

Heavy Has Debt

For Phoebe Washburn's Faulconer Gallery installation in the summer of 2003, she recycled pieces used from a previous installation. Washburn created a 14-foot tall and 95-foot long curved wall using only small cardboard pieces, drywall screws, and the help of volunteers. To Washburn, her art breaks down the elements of construction to the most basic form. In her words, the process and completed object is so dumb - yet hopefully something amazing emerges from it. 2003.
