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)


Onereddot Fine Wines


Liu Dao revs up their signature blend of witty observation and cutting edge technology to roll out an exhibition that muses on China’s rocketing car culture. As burnished messengers of social status, economic ambition, and personal freedom, automobiles have quickly become the must-have commodity in a nation hungry for diacritic expression. A corner apartment in Central, the latest Hermès pattern, reservations at the most exclusive eateries… its all meaningless if you’re not making the commute on custom leather seating. Featuring a collection of multimedia car scenes, “Key to Ignition” transforms the private space of the car into a voyeuristic stage in this high-octane exhibition. (read more >>>)
