Art, empire, identity and spirituality overlap in Chinatown. Reach the roof and raise a glass.
Golden Square

Golden Square is RISING’s swirling art car park—three levels of art, performance, parades and rooftop bars.

Smack bang in the middle of the longest continuous Chinatown in the West is a twisting maze of contemporary art. Cultures, religions and identities overlap with new iterations of centuries-old folklore. Rough concrete pillars, glowing pyramids and a capitalist mega-church are the architecture of our multi-level exhibition of ritual, mythology and digital spirituality.

Grab a drink and enter the fun-flux of spacetime. Blackhearts & Sparrows are serving up new-wave wine born from ancient traditions. There are cocktails and sacrilegious merch items too, dip your hand in one or both—sticky fingers be damned (or blessed).
