Dashanzi IAF

Published on May 19, 2006

Posting this a bit late, since the festival is ending this weekend. The Dashanzi International Art Festival is considered the biggest art event of the year in Beijing. Organizers estimate that more than 150,000 people visit the former factory district during the 3 week art festival each year. Events got off to a bit of a rocky start this year after censors confiscated about 20 works on display (primarily, works that in some way depict or allude to Chairman Mao). But the festival has continued on. Here are a few images from earlier this month:
