Taipei Cultural Center is delighted to present Desig-In:the exhibition of the contemporary moon shape fan.
Design is an important part of the society. It can stand alone as an individual art form. In addition, it can be a crossover art form integrated with all kinds of modern and technological product. In so doing, the quality of the product is improved and the value is increased. Design, therefore, becomes vital for creative industry.
In this exhibition, prominent designers are invited to design images for the moon shape fan by embodying the rich, significant Taiwanese culture such as the natural, cultural sceneries and heritages. The image reflects the integration of the profuse cultural meanings and designer’s style and observation. Their design gives the traditional and ornamental moon shape fan modernity, innovative look and aesthetic, and meanwhile carries out the Taiwanese imagery and cultural values.
These works are on loan from the TGDA (Taiwan Graphic Design Association), which has continuously urged Taiwanese designers to donate their efforts to exalt literature and originality of Taiwan. Taipei cultural Center of TECO in New York has been actively bringing Taiwan’s cultures to North America and strengthened cultural promotion considerably since 2002.
We cordially invite you to attend the opening reception and artist talk in 30th of May at Taiwan Academy.
