The whole family will love this imaginative, colorful, provocative installation.
Mignons, one Pixinity installation, represents how emojis are used in social media and online communication. Mignons was inspired by one who Qiu’s family members, who has autism and for whom communicating verbally can be difficult. Mignons reflects Qiu’s experience of communicating with his relative through digital figures and emojis, hoping to bring awareness to autism in a unique and creative way.
“It is my goal to use Pixinity as a platform for autism awareness and spark a much needed dialogue about autism support,” Qiu said. “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.”
Pixinity will run Monday-Sunday at 1 York Street from 11am-9pm. Tickets for adults are $38 and $19 for children 10 and younger. All tickets must be purchased in advance. To snag yours, visit Pixinity’s website.
