"Sin City - Impressions of Shanghai: New Work by island6"

Featuring a blend of never-before exposed artworks with a few pieces from Liu Dao's newest exhibition "Goddamned Shanghai" , this show will transpose the abundance and luxury of the Shanghai 1930's to a city with an equally glorious past of cabarets and sensuality - all for the celebration of Chinese New Year. Ushering in the Dragon year, this will be our second show in Tally Beck Contemporary, and the fruit of many years of collaboration. Come witness the scintillating poses of the paper cuts and the provocative dances of our sultry LED girls.


T.B.C will also be celebrating the Chinese New Year with cocktails and hors d'oeuvre from the legendary Marja Samsom, The Dumpling Diva. There will also be a special performance at 8:15 by Dance China New York, the resident dance troupe of the New York Chinese Cultural Center.

ABOUT

This exhibition explores the realties and myths of 1930s Shanghai, focusing on female sexuality and issues of exoticism, eroticism and Orientalism. Combining videographic technology with LED lights and found objects such as furniture and décor elements, the island6 collective produces animated, sociohistorical vignettes of 1930s Shanghai and the collision of Chinese and colonial cultures.
