ISLAND6 BUND
THIS LOCATION IS CLOSED, VISIT OUR 2 OTHER SHANGHAI GALLERIES: MAIN, SHGARDEN

Sitting in the shadows of one of the world’s most famous riverside views is island6 Bund, which has hosted numerous critically acclaimed exhibitions since its glamorous debut in October of 2013. island6’s third Shanghai location resides on the corner of historic Fuzhou Lu and Zhongshan Lu whilst facing the futuristic Pudong skyline. The stately 17 Fuzhou Lu was completed during the Qing Dynasty and was once home to a series of powerful trading and shipping companies – Russell & Co. and the China Merchants’ Steam Navigation Company – who controlled the Yangtze’s valuable traffic.

While all international trading houses, banks, and pomp in the front, a seedier side to Shanghainese life stirred in the backstreets during our darling Fuzhou Lu seat’s younger years. In the blocks behind the Bund, tangled webs of hanging wire masked the Neoclassical and Art Deco masterpieces while the glow of red lanterns from hundreds of singsongs coined Fuzhou Lu with the sobriquet, “the lane of lingering happiness.” Fortunately for island6 today, the only red glow cast upon the sidewalks is the flickering of our own LED artworks and installations. Fuzhou Lu is one of the oldest streets in our fair city, and has long boasted an enviable collection of bookstores and art supply stores. Today the Bund area is also home to a collection of some of the most highly esteemed galleries of contemporary art in Shanghai. Only a stones throw away from the Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai Gallery of Art, Around Space Gallery, Pearl Lam and Art + Shanghai, island6 Bund is surely in good company.

What causes us to see a million tiny masterpieces in a splotchy, unintelligible doodle? When we look close enough and for a long enough amount of time we might see a world of swirling genius on a page filled with scribbles. Is it the brain projecting something onto nothing? Or is something else at work? Could it be the burning bulbs of ideas too good to write slowly or a picture too urgent to take your time with? Scribble explores the little universes tumbling about in the oceans of ink and pencil and paint. (read more >>>)
