This hub of gal­leries is just five mins away from Dashanzi, and is the place for se­ri­ous col­lec­tors. This itin is a bit of a hike so wear flat shoes and ideally keep your car or taxi wait­ing if you can, at least un­til you get to Ga­lerie Urs Meile. Com­ing from Dashanzi on Air­port Side Rd / 機場高速輔路/ go to­wards Changjian Driv­ing School /長建駕校, turn right at the blue and white sign for Three Shad­ows Pho­tog­ra­phy Art Cen­tre com­plete with handy cafe (see Art). Opp. is a com­pound with Plat­form China at #319 / 6432 0091. Re­trace to Air­port Side Rd and turn left, then make a left at the traf­fic lights onto Nan­gao Lu /南皋路. Af­ter the cross­ing, take the right fork, then go first right and then first left to find Ga­lerie Urs Meile (see Art). Exit left to the end of the nar­row road, then swing left at the T-junc­tion. Fol­low the road to the right around a high wooden fence, stop­ping at #241 to head into a com­pound of grey-brick mod­u­lar blocks. On your left is Pekin Fine Arts (see Art). Head back out of the com­plex, carry on down the road and take the next right for fan­tas­tic trio White Space (see Art), Shang­hart / 6432 3202, and the Art­mia Foun­da­tion / 8457 4550. Exit Art­mia back onto the street and turn right to hit a T-junc­tion. Now, spin right to the red brick build­ings for Cham­bers Fine Art / 5127 3298. Be­hind Cham­bers, you’ll find C Space / 5127 3248; Taikang Space / 5127 3173; and Bei­jing Art Now / 5127 3292. Knack­ered? Food and wine op­tions are rather lim­ited here, but pop back for a fiery sup­per at No.6 Sichuan Food Stu­dio (see above). Fine work, com­rade!
