United Nude originates from collaboration: A Dutch architect and an English shoemaker started a brand and shook up the world. In the process of their partnership they have worked with editors and writers on magazine concepts, with industrial designers on furniture and car design, with fashion designers, with other brands, with photographers, manufacturers, and curators: collaboration continues to be at the heart and soul of United Nude’s existence.
Being well connected within China’s creative industries, the 5PRCITY photo project was initiated by United Nude with a selection of China’s leading photographers.
The simple theme “Women and the City” in China’s 5 main cities.
Yiki Liu (Shanghai), Pingshen (Shanghai), 223 (Beijing), Song Liu (Beijing), Qiu (Guangzhou), GT (Guangzhou), Quist (Hong Kong) and Baichuan (Chengdu).
Together, the work from these artists forms a time-capsule of the China of today.
The 5PRCITY project will premiere at a VIP reception held on Saturday, August 7, 2010 from 4pm to 6pm at the 1918 Art Space Gallery in Shanghai and will exhibit from 10:30am to 6:30pm from August 6th – 12th.
The exhibition is accompanied by a 5PRCITY limited edition book (500 copies only) and shall travel to other notable art galleries around the world after its debut in Shanghai.
