Qibao isn’t the first place that comes to mind for being the most artistic and fashionable neighborhood in Shanghai, but the new WAVELENGTH: RESET contemporary art exhibition at the Powerlong Museum might change your perception.

Open from July 8 to October 8, the fashion design- and multimedia art-focused exhibition organized by New York-based art curating agency CUBE features the works of 41 young artists and designers from China and abroad.

Through paintings, sculptures, clothing, furniture, video and art installations, these young talents have all come together to explore the topic of modern consumerism, raise concerns about the effects of fast consumption, and highlight the importance of applying sustainable resources into everyday life in a post-industrial era.

Participating artists include Trevor Andrew (aka Gucci Ghost), who made a name for himself by tagging the streets of Brooklyn with his own interpretation of the Gucci logo and monogram; Danish fashion designer and artist Henrik Vibskov, who has a huge following in Asia and often collaborates with fashion labels from the region; as well as Philip Colbert (top photo), a multidisciplinary artist who's admired by big names like Lady Gaga and Karl Lagerfeld and dubbed as the 'godson of Andy Warhol' by Vogue's Andre Leon Talley. 

We got the chance to see the exhibition before 7,400 visitors descended upon the museum on its opening day, and here are some photos from the preview:
