Dating ideas for Qixi: art exhibitions in Beijing

Two's company

The Soka Art Center is presenting dual solo exhibitions of young artists Zhao Bo and Xun Guipin. The paintings of Zhao, 29, display a sense of youthful, primeval and unconstrained vitality. His new work examines birth and death in nature, the law of the jungle and the continuous transformation of energy. Xun was born, raised and educated in Yunnan province, and still lives there. His paintings convey a strong sentiment for land, and yearnings for things that are lost in urbanization.

Opening times: 10 am-6 pm, closed on Mondays, Aug 3-Sept 15. Soka Art Center, 798 Art District, 4 Jiuxianqiao Road, Chaoyang district, Beijing. 010-5978-4808.
