Shanghai (CN) – Streetpianos PMIY 2021 – expect 17 pianos – dates TBC
June 1, 2021 - June 21, 2021
After sensational editions in 2019/20, no doubt another set of beautiful hand-painted pianos will be back in the HKRI Taikoo Hui mall.
About the Pianos
More than just pianos, they are pieces of artwork painted with animals and plants, geometric abstractions and colorful shapes in themes of rebirth, the bustling city and environmental protection. After the event, the mall donates the pianos to social organizations. This gives new meaning to the project and once again causes a sensation in the city.
About the Venue/Event
The HKRI Taikoo Hui mall on Nanjing Road W. introduced the project to Shanghai in 2018, and since then it has become an annual event.
About the Organizer
The initiative is part of the worldwide campaign, “Play Me, I’m Yours,” launched by British artist Luke Jerram to connect people through music. Since 2020, the mall joined with the China Soong Ching Ling Foundation and World of Art Brut Culture to invite artists and students to paint 17 pianos.
