Pop-Up Exhibition in Soho New York
Pixinity transports guests to a captivating universe of 10 imaginative rooms for an unforgettable, immersive experience. Guests will navigate their way through a futuristic wonderland of fun, colorful spaces that feature more than 100 individual pieces of sculptures, pixel art, emoji-like characters, digital and gaming icons, and computer-inspired imagery.
‘BORN TO SHINE’ is Pixinity's philanthropic collaboration with Autism Speaks, as both share the goal of raising social awareness for those affected by autism. As part of this program, a portion of sales will be donated to support autism research and patients.
The artist behind Pixinity, Tianyu Qiu, has a family member diagnosed with autism and although they struggle with verbal communication, the two are able to communicate with computers, the internet, and iconographic symbols. In this exhibition, he replicates and creates a digital world for kids, families and all others to have fun and enjoy a fairyland of pixels.
“It is my goal to use Pixinity as a platform for autism awareness and spark a much needed dialogue about autism support,” says artist Tianyu Qiu. “With this in mind, we launched ‘Born To Shine,’ our philanthropic arm that helps and supports autistic children and their families. We are thrilled to be partnering with Autism Speaks, one of the leading autism support organizations nationally, for this exhibit.”
