798 Art District

Soak into Chinese contemporary art

If you'd like to learn more about Chinese contemporary art, the 789 Art District should be your first port of call. Here, you'll discover a new wave of modern art, and might even bump into some of the artists that are making this new movement happen.

In Beijing, 798 Art District embodies the country’s cutting edge art movement led by enthusiastic and innovative pioneering artists. Evolved from a German-designed abandoned factory, the building that houses the 789 Art District has developed an interesting culture from the mix of Chinese and Bauhaus-influenced styles. Nowadays, as more and more artists assemble there, many brilliant artworks are produced and displayed in this district. It has become a unique cultural concept and a new landmark of Beijing.

The 798 Art District is located in the Dashanzi Area, northeast of central Beijing, a 15 minute drive from Kempinski Hotel Beijing Lufthansa Center. The opening hours are from 10am to 6pm, Tuesday to Sunday. Be sure to allow one to two hours minimum to fully explore when you visit.
