Stepping into the gallery halls of Island 6 was a thrilling experience. As an enclave in the cluster of Shanghai's M50 gallery district, Island 6 is one of the largest and well-built gallery spaces. On view was the latest exhibition of the artist collective in residence, founders of the Island 6 gallery: Liu Dao. This Shanghai-based collective deals primarily with digital art, and pushes public conception about what kind of visual experiences are possible thanks to LED lights, collages, computer programming and a little magic. The subject matter they tackle with takes from Chinese porcelain history, to the fetichization of the oriental Chinese women in the colonial era, to the fast urban development of Shanghai.
I recommend all digital art fans to check out their work via their well-designed website, which feels like a modern-day video games arena, and see some examples of their work on the images above.
