Liu Dao Artist Collective
Liu Dao 六岛 (or Liù dǎo, a Pinyin phrase meaning "island number 6") is a Shanghai-based art collective of tech-geeks and creative talents driven by innovation and interaction. The collective produces cutting edge art that constantly contemplates the future of Asia, engages sights and scenes from old and new China and elevates the skills of new talents by working from a communal forum. Liu Dao's art is visual, interactive, conceptual, humorous, and somber - but always striking, always involving fresh takes on modern technology, and always the product of collaboration. Since Liu Dao's beginning, painters, sculptors, photographers, filmmakers, new media artists, software and digital imaging artists, dancers, writers, engineers, and curators have worked together to produce original, intriguing shows. island6 Arts Center often features guest directors and guest curators for different exhibitions, allowing an international and cross-cultural foundation for original ideas to be born from many sources of input rather than one.
Island6 Arts Center is an artist-founded platform, managed by devoted creative staff and based in Shanghai with a production site and an adjoining gallery for the cutting-edge, new media artwork of theLiu Dao art collective. Every "art forward" island6 exhibition is the product of multi-disciplined, collaborative in-house workshops. The history of the center dates back to 2006, when it was founded by Thomas Charvériat in a rehabilitated flour mill warehouse on Moganshan Road.
