"Ruby Roxy Rhino Rouge Rock Hong Kong"

Long-time friend and partner-in-crime of island6, studio rouge, has launched its Hong Kong space with a sizzling opening party on Saturday, 22 Sept 2012. Ruby, Roxy, Rhino, Rouge Rock Hong Kong is studio rouge's Hong Kong sequel to Shanghai's Ruby, Roxy and the Flaming Lambourghini, which opened with great fanfare on the Bund in December 2011. Both shows are part of the Ruby, Roxy series that are specially curated for special events like Christmas, Chinese New Year and, in this case, the opening of studio rouge Hong Kong.
island6 was part of the show with Anthology of Labia, an edgy multimedia piece that combined blood-red lips with old-school Chinese magnifying glasses.
The artworks selected for Ruby embody the studio rouge ideal, captured in the show's intriguing title. Bold, edgy, powerful and provocative, studio rouge has consistently exhibited young contemporary artists who push their creative boundaries and challenge artistic norms. For the Hong Kong opening, founder George Michell put together a stunning celebration of the individuality and originality of studio rouge's 28 artists. A battle-hardened veteran of the Shanghai art scene, George gave his show its intriguing name to reflect his experiences, curatorial style and philosophy. Ruby and Roxy are the Laurel and Hardy-type curators who balance the show's sense of fun and irreverence with thoughtful commentary. Rhino is no other than the well-loved, kneeless ungulate whose day is celebrated worldwide on - of course - 22 September. George attributes the success of studio rouge to the rhino-like tenacity for surviving its precarious situation. Hunted down by poachers, driven out by land developers, the fragile existence of the rhino is reminiscent of the gallery in its youth - having to navigate the path of creative freedom within a tangle of media pressure, financial challenges and other obstacles.
Rouge - passion, life, glamour - has clearly triumphed over all that, as the gallery gets ready to Rock Hong Kong with more fresh, cutting-edge art.
