Yang Yong's Psychedelic Lamps at the UCCA

The UCCA is home to a number of spaces dedicated to contemporary art exhibitions. It's pretty amazing entering a Bauhaus-inspired architectural space filled with pop culture icons, printed on hundreds of lamps—quite a feast for the eyes! In the 798 vicinity, nearby Caochangdi, there are many more galleries with the same scale of works.

For more information, visit the official website of the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art.
