ISLAND6 HONG KONG

Following the 5 Year Plan for world domination, the Liu Dao electronic art collective has 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 is propitiously situated on No. 1 New Street, an intersection that marries old and new elements of the area. With the opening of "Dripping with Aurum" (June 2012), island6 is proud to join the community of local and international art galleries located in this historic and blossoming arts district. island6 Hong Kong will follow in the footsteps of her big sister in Shanghai in showing cutting-edge new media art that explores contemporary issues in Asia through multimedia, interactive artworks. In its signature style of fusing the traditional with the modern, the artworks on display will involve the use of LED, interactive components, photography, video, neon, sculpture and post-contemporary painting imagery.

HISTORY

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.
