Shifting Objectives: Design from the M+ Collection
30 November 2016 to 5 February, 2017 | M+ Pavilion, West Kowloon Cultural District*
M+’s debut design exhibition – Shifting Objectives: Design from the M+ Collection – explores the many concepts and frameworks that have shaped and broadened our understanding of design. Featuring dozens of key objects and works – from mid-twentieth century Japanese furniture, to familiar products from Hong Kong’s manufacturing heyday, to drones, ‘copied’ goods, and digitally-enabled and open-source practices – this groundbreaking show illustrates how design philosophies and practices have changed from the post-Second World War period until now. In so doing, Shifting Objectives outlines the growing contours of the M+ design collection, which is the first of its kind in Asia and a core pillar of M+.
* Please note that the exhibition will be closed on 25 December, 2016, and on 1, 28, and 29 January, 2017.
