"Chinalizing The West", Laowai Jie Art Festival "Between Midnight and Dawn" by Liu Dao "Behind Locked Doors" by Liu Dao

“Chinalizing The West”
Laowai Jie Art Festival, Shanghai

Laoweijie street, a melting pot for cultural locals and foreigners alike, endearingly named by its founder, Zhang Yajiang, to embrace Shanghai’s international status. Laoweijie is a former railway line now turned pedestrian walkway, which spans 480 meters, purely for the purpose of leisure. It plays host to numerous restaurants from across the globe, with cuisine from a staggering 17 different countries. As you saunter down the street and soak up the ambience of its worldly charm, it seems only fitting that it would play host to a ‘foreigners’ art festival to reflect this cultural diversity. It provides a place where rich creativity meets curiosity as the audience, performers and participators all merge together to showcase Shanghai’s international talent. Island6 is proud to announce we have been asked to take part in this cultural collaboration and we will feature alongside an array of talented artists at the very first of its kind, the Laoweijie Art Festival. We encourage you to get yourselves down to this spectacular street and be involved in this celebration of international culture.
