Exhibits of post-independence India in Hong Kong show

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Over 120 items related to post-independence India; post-World War II and under Mao will be on display at a top museum beginning tomorrow.

"Shifting Objectives: Design from the M+ Collection" is the inaugural display of M+ museum's collection for visual culture encompassing 20th and art, design, and architecture and will be on till February 5.



Featuring more than 120 exhibits, it covers periods including post-World War II Japan; post-independence India; under Mao; and Hong Kong's manufacturing and export heyday of the 1950s until the 1980s, in addition to Postmodern design of the 1970s and 1980s in Japan.

Influential designers will be featured, including Charlotte Perriand, Shiro Kuramata and Ettore Sottsass.

"Spanning the second half of the 20th century, a series of five vignettes, or 'rooms', offer tightly-edited snapshots of how design helped shape, and was shaped by, the social, cultural, economic, and political milieus of, respectively, post-World War II Japan; post-independence India; under Mao; and Hong Kong's manufacturing and export heyday of the 1950s until the 1980s," a statement said.

The fifth "room" re-examines Postmodern design of the 1970s and 1980s, offering a new interpretation of that international phenomenon as seen primarily through the work of its Japanese practitioners.

A collection of contemporary designs from around the world will be simultaneously on display.

"Shifting Objectives: Design from the M+ Collection" is organised by Aric Chen, Lead Curator, Design and Architecture, with Jennifer Wong, Assistant Curator, Design and Architecture.

"With Shifting Objectives, we are extremely pleased to mark another milestone in the development of M+ as we gear up towards the 2019 opening of the M+ building," says Duncan Pescod, Chief Executive Officer of the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority.

"Design, along with architecture, visual art, and moving image, is a core part of M+'s visual culture remit," says Doryun Chong, Acting Director and Chief Curator of M+.

"We hope Shifting Objectives will give people a sense of some of the stakes we've been laying as we work towards bringing out the unexpected, while also re-examining the familiar, in design," says Aric.
