VIRTUAL ART SHOW BY CHINESE ARTIST IN LONDON Opens 26 July 2008 for one year.
Beijing-based artist Cao Fei is creating RMB City, an online art community in the virtual world of Second Life.
Institutions and collectors are invited to buy buildings in RMB City and programme events and activities in them. The project is an experiment exploring the creative relationship between real and virtual space, and is a reflection of China’s urban and cultural explosion.
The Serpentine Gallery commissioned Cao Fei to develop this project, and it will be presented via the Serpentine website and in the Gallery’s lobby for one year. Cao Fei’s work was included in the Serpentine’s 2006 exhibition, China Power Station: Part I, held at Battersea Power Station.
