On this episode we look at the Chinese art scene with Brian Wallace of Beijing’s Red Gate Gallery who's had a front row seat to the evolution of Chinese art since the mid 80s. We discuss the history of the gallery itself, from its birth in a Ming dynasty guard tower to its current location at the epicentre of Chinese art in Beijing’s 798 Art District. We also look at the life of a modern day Chinese artist, avoiding censors and the growing culture of art collection among China’s affluent middle class.
