M+ Exhibition: Shifting Objectives – including a small section on HK industrial products

M+ is the new museum for visual culture in Hong Kong, as part of the West Kowloon Cultural District, focusing on 20th and 21st century art, design and architecture and moving image.

It currently has an exhibition, Shifting Objectives: Design from the M+ Collection which will run until 5th February 2017 which includes a small section on industrial products made in Hong Kong.

The “exhibition 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+”.
