In the summer of 2012, the Liu Dao electronic art collective sailed across the straits to set up a mini-island6 in the glamorous heart of Hong Kong. Located in the historic district of Sheung Wan, island6 Hong Kong brings the work of Liu Dao to the residents of the lovely Pearl of the Orient with its perch at No. 1 New Street, an intersection that marries old and new elements of the area.

Since its opening in June 2012, island6 has been proud to join the community of local and international art galleries located in this historic and blossoming arts district. Since its inception, island6 Hong Kong has followed in the footsteps of her big sister in Shanghai with a slew of cutting-edge new media art exhibitions that take inspiration from the myriad contemporary trends and issues of Asia. Expect to see the island6 signature style fusing the traditional with the modern on full display with the artworks integrating LED, interactive components, photography, video, neon, sculpture and post-contemporary painting imagery.

About Sheung Wan Arts District
Located in the north-west of Hong Kong Island, between Central and Sai Ying Pun with Victoria Harbour in the north and Mid-Levels in the south, Sheung Wan is an authentic Hong Kong that dates back to the founding of the colony and continues into the 21st century as the centre of Hong Kong's Art Scene.
One of the places first settled by the British, the site of the original occupation of Hong Kong Island by British forces in 1842 was at Possession Street in Sheung Wan. The foot of Possession Street, Possession Point, was at that time on the shoreline but is now several hundred yards inland due to reclamation.
Sheung Wan still maintains its local character, with Chinese herbal medicine, bird's nest and tea shops, temples, a Chinese bakery, and even a coffin carver down the hill from Tung Wah hospital. All are well established and thankfully showing no signs of moving elsewhere. Additionally, a true Hong Kong market, Sheung Wan Market is also located in the area and features a cross-section of local culinary traditions, from vegetable stalls to fishmongers.
Art galleries are ubiquitous in Sheung Wan, with other galleries such as Cat Street Gallery, Galerie NeC, Para/Site, Moon gallery, input output, studio rouge already established in the area.

island6 art collective (Liu Dao 六岛)


Anyone who has ever experienced a gut feeing knows how powerful and persuasive it can be. Controlled by the inner psyche of cognition, the commonly depicted battle of head versus heart always seems to leave one thing glaringly omitted from the equation: the stomach. To trust in your gut or to betray it is a fundamental human experience that can teach us invaluable lessons about ourselves, and the world around us. Join us as we take a long stringy foray into the world of human guts (both real and imagined). This new series of art works from the Liu Dao collective seeks to ultimately learn- what does it mean to really have guts?
For the first time this year the Liu Dao collective will be participating in Asia Week Hong Kong. In its 3rd year, this event will be host to lecturers, educators and collectors all celebrating The Heritage Edition from May 27th to June 11th, 2015. During this time island6 will be collaborating in sharing and promoting new media concepts in contemporary art through Hong Kong and Greater China.  Follow your gut and take a chance by joining us on June 2nd 2015 from 7pm-10pm for our most animated vernissage so far. Located at 1 New Street, Sheung Wan, the event's wine will be flowing with a generous sponsorship form Corks. (read more >>>)
