Design Society's new major exhibition Craft: The Reset is opening on September 16, 2018.
Over 50 exhibitors, including Alan Chen, Zhu Zheqin, Jeff Shidayu, Michael Young, SHAGNXIA, Yang Mingjie, Zhang Yonghe, Shao Fan, Liu Jianhua etc., will present more than 100 works in the large-scale space of the main exhibition hall.
Approaching crafts from four distinct angles, Craft: The Reset evaluates how creative practices are reinvigorating crafts from within, using this medium as an interface to engage with larger themes in contemporary society. It explores how designers create new lifestyles with crafts. In this context, we ask how designers are relating to the past through traditional crafts, how they are engaging with materials, how crafts are being innovated or are a channel for new innovation, and how crafts represent a new idealism and responsibility. Each section shows how designers are thinking through crafts, showing a new spirit or attitude towards detail, time, culture, skill, value and connection.
