Louis Vuitton: A Passion for Creation” Exhibition Takes Over Hong Kong's Museum of Art, Artists include: Jean-Michel Basquiat, Paul Chan, Cao Fei, Yang Fudong, Gilbert and George, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Andreas Gursky, Pierre Huyghe, Jeff Koons, Bertrand Lavier, Christian Marclay and Richard Prince.


"People’s Limbo" project in RMB City:

“People’s Limbo” is a new series of interactive, experiential activities that take place in Cao Fei’s RMB City, a fantastical community in the vast virtual world of Second Life. A reaction to the global economic crisis, the project is an exploration of the feelings of despair, denial, and loss of control that accompany financial catastrophe, as well as the simultaneous potential for progress toward rebirth, self-reliance, and freedom.

Beginning May 22, 2009, ten videos of the ten new People’s Limbo activities will be displayed in the Hong Kong Museum of Art, as part of the Louis Vuitton-sponsored “Passion for Creation” group exhibition. The videos offer a Real Life (RL) audience a unique view of the essence of the “People’s Limbo” experience, while Second Life (SL) users can experience the work firsthand. Via avatars, people may participate interactively in each of the ten activities, as if playing a virtual art game.
