Q: Is 798 still *the* underground art scene in Beijing?

I heard a rumor a while back that as 798 has become more popular/mainstream that a bunch of local artists have started to form a new underground art scene somewhere further outside the city.

Has anyone heard anything about this?

There's nothing underground about 798 these days. I went not so long ago, and quite frankly, I was happy when I was out of there. Why? People were snapping pics of everything and everyone from all angles. I couldn't walk without stepping into the frame of someone's pics. And they all looked like stupid domestic tourists, not art enthusiasts. The people go to see the architecture, not the art. Most of the galleries were quite empty which further convinced me of this. Oh and the wedding photographers...don't even get me started.

The "new" place which has been around for a few years already is Caochangdi, but maybe there's an even more underground place that I haven't heard of yet.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
