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 the Liu 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. Since then, it has occupied various locations and has set up partnerships with several galleries in Beijing, Hong Kong, Paris, Bangkok, Singapore and New York. The Liu Dao collective primarily creates LED artworks, interactive installations, photography, video art and sculptures. Liu Dao explores the cultural potential of the convergence of art, technology and science, and promotes cross-cultural dialogue through their unique collaborative philosophy.
