Q: Does Beijing have any art districts that mostly full of crap?

You walk around 'Art dsitricts' in this city and it is mostly full of crap. And galleries look like they've never had a curator in their life. Why is this? And where did all the good art go?

I think Beijing is somewhat culture-less compared to the East Coast, Southern provinces and Western provinces.

 

In parts of China without ethnic minority influence or a history of foreign occupation, art tends to mean the mass-replication of a very limited range of traditional art (especially the sort that heavily features mountains and bamboo).

 

Culture is something that is fluid and ever-expanding --- If it doesn't absorb new mediums and subject matter, it becomes stagnant. Unfortunately, in the Chinese worldview "culture" is something that was created in the past, and which is rigidly defined and protected. I don't think modern art has any place in what China considers to be "culture".

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
