Lvxiao Annual Exhibition - Third Back
by Tokyo Gallery+BTAP(Beijing)
Location: Tokyo Gallery +BTAP | Beijing
Date: 3 Jul - 1 Aug 2010

At the beginning of 2002, “Lv” met “54boy” and 54boy’s friend “Breath” online. The three people started an exchange about painting on Lv’s online forum. The name, “LVXIAO”, was originally one of the web names Breath frequently used in Lv’s forum with the purpose of setting up a school in which Lv and 54boy teach modern painting. A few days later, they opened the website LVXIAO.COM as a platform to start encourage communication and creativity in the community.
LVXIAO is a community that anyone can participate in. As long as you leave a message in the blog or take part in gatherings or exhibitions of LVXIAO, you are joining LVXIAO. From 2002 to 2010, LVXIAO has existed for nine years. LVXIAO, using a bog as a platform, publishes its own art work and acts as a form where online cartoonists and young people interested in art exchange their views on each other’s works. Members are composed of both students and graduate students of professional art academies, as well as amateur art lovers without formal art education. The open, equal, and free values of LVXIAO help art lovers find their own stage and experience the happiness from both sharing and understanding!
The cooperation between LVXIAO and Tokyo Gallery + BTAP is bound to have a profound influence on the development of LVXIAO, and is a new venue for LVXIAO. Tokyo Gallery gives an opportunity for the members who like painting to show themselves, providing a rare exhibition experience for each author. Weather or not they become artists, we hope that each participating member can gain something and be happy in the exhibition.
We hope you take this opportunity to view the exhibition and look forward to your visit.
