This event has now passed.

Meridian Space hosts a visual art and video exhibition of works by Beijing-based artists Filippo Cardella and Karel Downsbrough. They elaborate on the title, Inner City Doldrums: 'The doldrums are generally defined as a state of inactivity, mild depression, listlessness, or stagnation. Although the human soul is all too familiar with this deadly calm condition, the “magnificent and progressive fate” of the hectic city environment runs against it, and Beijing is no exception. Inner City Doldrums follows a solitary vagabond, the Last Man, as he wanders between the glory of a gentrified metropolis and the ruins of a post-atomic Beijing, looking for answers to his own uneasiness towards life.'
