POP-UP ART SHOP PROJECT 001
The newly-established inspiring art organization, ARTUP, presents a series of unique theme- oriented pop-up art projects, POP-UP ART SHOP PROJECT. Their first pop-up exhibition will be on view in New York City before its launch in Beijing.
The art group focuses on promoting the “New York / Beijing 2016 - 2017 Twin Cities POP-UP ART SHOP PROJECT” in their first year. More than 20 emerging artists were invited to this project and will create works to discuss social topics. Four pop-up exhibitions will take place in the group’s art shops located at popular places in New York City and Beijing. Meanwhile, limited edition of art-related designed products will be available for purchase. Featuring fresh trends and focusing on public welfare, POP-UP ART SHOP PROJECT commits to increase public awareness of these artists, encourage Eastern and Western cultural communication, and combine fashion and art together.
“SEX & LOVE” is the first theme of the POP-UP ART SHOP PROJECT. Five young New York- based artists create artworks in the form of painting, photography, and other mediums to tell their narrative concerning humankind’s most universal topics with an in-depth meaning happening in New York City. On Dec. 8th, 2016, the exhibition shows up at the Lower East Side gallery XY Atelier Gallery. Special thanks to the support from YOHO! – A trendsetting magazine in China, and “mars” – the mobile APP which explores lifestyle. Partial income of this project will be donated to selected New York non-profit organizations in order to assist HIV/AIDS awareness and LGBTQ relevant projects.
