2017 Gallery Hop: Focus on Chinese Paintings and 2D Work

For the eighth and final post in our 2017 Gallery Hop series, we're focusing on Chinese paintings, prints, textiles and photography, with a 5-mile itinerary that takes you to seven galleries, from the Upper East Side to SoHo. We recommend walking to the first 6 exhibitions (about 1.5 miles), then taking public transportation or a taxi to reach the last gallery in SoHo. And while you're down there, remember that the China Institute is also downtown, at the southern tip of the island.
