“Dance of Light”

Liu Dao is on a perpetual quest to push the boundaries of art’s concept, production, and display. Thus, the collective’s collaboration with Shanghai’s luxurious Grand Gateway 66 was begot from a desire to create artwork that transcends the typical white-walled gallery space and moves beyond antiquated notions of “Art.” The exhibition “Dance of Light” features exclusive Liu Dao LED multimedia artworks that embody the dynamic and sublime qualities of light.

By nature, light is beholden to its surroundings. Liu Dao’s LED artworks capture light’s limitless ability to dazzle and inspire, and render light free to dance and reflect in the viewer’s eye as pure artistic expression. These highly conceptual, futuristic artworks are themselves inspired by the glittering streets of the ever-expanding city of Shanghai, and find an apt arena for display in Grand Gateway 66, a symbol of the city’s brightly lit future.
