Pete Bradt (b. Cincinnati 1985) was Chief Editor(volunteer) of island6 Arts
Center from 2010 to 2011. He is a graduate of Winchester College, UK, and has degrees
from the University of Pennsylvania in Film Studies and English.
As Editor, he compiled research for the in-house collective Liu Dao on
information relevant to exhibitions such as Libido Mortido and Psychic
Apparatus, organized written content from external writers for
reviews, and provided in-depth interviews and descriptions for
magazines and websites, including Time Out Shanghai and Saatchi
Online. He was a Creative Director for island6, using his film and
literary conceptual background to help form ideas for Liu Dao and
visiting artists. He was the co-curator for the exhibitions Absolute
0:00 and Prophecies, supervising the creation of artworks and
installations, and authoring the artistic essays that serve as the
bases for the exhibitions.
Pete Bradt was also Public Relations Manager for island6 Arts Center
and Liu Dao, serving as international representative to Thailand, Hong
Kong and South Korea. He maintained communication with galleries and
artists around the world and provided promotion for the young,
upcoming artists of Liu Dao.
All of Pete's past tasks have been part of his role as International Correspondent for island6: he is our liaison to the world outside of China. His regular stints in China have been a learning experience, helping him better represent Liu Dao's distinctly Chinese character.
