Confluence • 20+
Presented by the Hong Kong Design Centre with major support from Create Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Brussels, Confluence • 20+ is a multidisciplinary exhibition in Milan that offers a perspective on Hong Kong's creative ecologies. As the third edition of an ongoing exhibition series, Confluence • 20+ is a stage for creative collisions. The show presents twenty truly inspiring collaborative design projects by Hong Kong's best design talents, lending insights into the co-evolving ecosystems of the city where east and west, tradition and innovation, craftsmanship and technology synergise.
Living in an ever-reinventing and culturally diverse metropolis, the creative minds in Hong Kong have never been restrained by the city’s confining urban space. Through continual collaboration with global practitioners, they add value to materials and objects, leveraging cultural influences and resources from China, Asia and beyond. The exhibits in Confluence • 20+ are coalescences of cross-boundary interactions and intertwining relationships. Deep inside the crux of every single piece is a community woven across socioeconomic and cultural silos.
Confluence • 20+ is a visual feast of creative works showcasing Hong Kong designers’ ingenuity in crossing boundaries: East, West, Heritage, Craftsmanship, Artistry, Urban Living, and Experiential Innovation. It is an exclusive visual adventure into Hong Kong’s vibrant creative ecologies that both insiders and public audience must not miss.
Participating designers: Nicol Boyd & Tomas Rosén, Alan Chan, Samuel Chan, Gary Chang, Lu Lu Cheung, Chiu Kwong Chiu, C.L. Lam, Freeman Lau, James Law, Lee Chi Wing, Lo Chi Wing, Lo Kai Yin, Lo Sing Chin, Sharon de Lyster, Elaine Yan Ling Ng, Kingsley Ng, Sammy Or, Julie Progin & Jesse McLin, Otto Tang, Stanley Wong.
The Hong Kong Design Center is a government-funded non-profit organization celebrating design excellence. The institution champions the creation of business values and community benefits through design. This latest exhibition series is a homage to Hong Kong’s design heritage roots and will sojourn in Milan, Hong Kong, Seoul and Chicago. The Milan edition opens Tuesday, 4th April and runs through Sunday, 16th April at La Triennale di Milano, Italy.
