AROUND SPACE: Better than Disney World

Some galleries still adhere to the white cube convention of exhibiting art. Around Space gallery embraces the beat-up walls, chipped tiles, and dilapidated ceilings of the two spaces that house their art within the 696 Weihai Lu enclave. At #108, Building 11, they've hammered together shapes made of unfinished drywall to use as display units, while the walls are literally falling down at #202, Building 9. This gallery doesn't take themselves too seriously and is a place run by art lovers, for art lovers.

I heart Around Space.
