Performing Arts
Location:  UCCA Auditorium
Language:  In Chinese Only

Leading names in international contemporary design rarely look to China for inspiration. Likewise, many Chinese designers search outside their country’s borders for new ideas. Yet there is evidence that this trend is changing.Has there been a shift in the world of design,with greater interest in traditional Chinese craftsmanship and culture?
To explore what international designers may learn from traditional Chinese craftsmanship and the mutual benefits of cross-cultural exchange, Wallpaper*—the world’s leading design magazine—will host a panel discussion moderated by Wallpaper* Editorial Director Richard Cook. In the panel, a selection of international designers and industry expertswill share their experiences working with or in China and their thoughts on what the future may bring.
