Join us for the opening of Sin City – Impressions of Shanghai: New Work by island6 on Wednesday, January 25, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Tally Beck Contemporary Gallery, 42 Rivington Street, New York, NY 10002. The exhibition will run through March 11, 2012.
island6 is an artist collective based in Shanghai. They have recently exploded on the international scene with their innovative animated electronic LED multimedia works. This will be the second solo exhibition of the Shanghai collective in the United States.
The group’s new work explores issues of sexuality and objectivity against the backdrop of 1930s Shanghai. The pieces conjure themes of exoticism, eroticism and Orientalism.
We will also be celebrating the Chinese New Year with cocktails and hors d’œuvre from the legendary Marja Samsom, the Dumpling Diva. There will also be a special performance at 8:15 p.m. by Dance China New York, the resident dance troupe of the New York Chinese Cultural Center.
