ABOUT

As part of the current exhibition, “The Artist Died Yesterday”, where over 16 creative voices have come together to beat Art to Death with irony, island6 has decided to stage an interactive evening for the public at large to celebrate the theme.

“The Artist Died Yesterday” was a collective exhibition where island6 challenged the people of Shanghai to question and re-examine issues about Art Today: “What is an Artist?” “What is an Artist’s Worth?”, and, more directly, “How to exploit and invest in their death?” (read more >>>)

About island6
island6 Arts Center is an artist-founded, "art first" philanthropic project, managed by devoted creative staff and based in Shanghai1 2. The center is dedicated to the support of the island6 art collective, Liu Dao 六岛, and to the constant initiation of risk-taking programs that explore new curatorial models and innovative projects. In 2007, island6 Arts Center established Liu Dao as a research group including artists, engineers, and technicians devoted to developing technological platforms for the Arts. Liu Dao explores the cultural ramifications of the convergence of art, technology, and science and strives to influence the aesthetic trajectory of the global artist community. Every "art forward" island6 exhibition is the product of multi-disciplined, collaborative in-house workshops.
