island6 Arts Center is proud to present “Through the Wormhole”, a continuation of the show “Temporal Visions”. Going beyond notions of temporality and timelessness, Liu Dao has set out to find the wormhole that connects the many lives of a Shanghai past. As you saunter through the latest exhibition at island6, one will be transported back to the far-off and away days of a Shanghai glitzy golden era. A period that Liu Dao no doubt draws considerable inspiration from, the 1920’s and 30’s provide a myriad of decadent imagery and sensuous charm. Smitten by the opulence and indulgence of the time, the island6 creative portal is transformed into a picture of the past, recreating the bold, unique beauty of a long from forgotten era.
The exhibition opens on October 18th and lasts until the 11th of December, 7 days a week, 10-7 pm.
Join us from 6 to 9 pm on October 18th and be transported back in time- put on your felt hat and your glitzy qipao and let us lead you into a den of debaucherous pleasure, swinging jazz and Shanghai-style indulgence.
