Located in the Dashanzi area, to the northeast of central Beijing, 798 Arts Zone is also called Dashanzi Art District, which is the site of state-owned factories in 1950s including Factory 798, originally produced electronics.Attracted by the Bauhaus Style buildings and convenient transportation in this tranquil area, artists began to gather to re-make the factory spaces, gradually developing them into galleries, art centers, artists' studios, design companies, restaurants, and bars.

Now it has become a "Soho-esque" area of international character, replete with "loft living," attracting attention of media and press both from home and abroad. Bringing together contemporary art, architecture, and culture with a historically interesting location and an urban lifestyle, "798" has evolved into the center and the biggest space for cultural, artistic, commercial acivities, fashion show ect., making it the most resounding name in the artistic circle and attracting a large number of domestic and foreign tourists and celebrities.

Nowadays, Beijing 798 Art Zone frequently holds important international art exhibitions and art activities as well as fashion shows.
