SHIFTING OBJECTIVES: DESIGN FROM THE M+ COLLECTION


Fragment(s) vase B takes part in the M+’s debut design exhibition – Shifting Objectives: Design from the M+ Collection – from 30 Nov 2016 to 5 Feb 2017.


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+.

A series of programmes—including workshops, talks, a studio visit, a teachers’ private view, and guided tours for the public, schools, and visitors with specific needs—accompany the exhibition.

In the run up to the opening of the M+ building in 2019, the M+ Pavilion functions as a temporary home for M+ exhibitions and events.
