The exhibition

The idea of a design exhibition in Shenzhen dates back to the last century.

Being a modern new city, Shenzhen was not only a miracle in economic development in the past 23 years, but also an extraordinary example of cultural pioneer. And designing artists are one of the highlights on Shenzhen´s map of culture. On this land of vitality has amassed a large number of outstanding designers, who took great liberty in making innovations and bringing their talents into full play. Shenzhen designers have left remarkable impressions on both the domestic and the international art stage. Many of the most important design exhibitions of the last century, including Graphic Design in China and The Design Art Section of the Ninth national Art Exhibition, were held in Shenzhen. These exhibitions received enthusiastic responses from art-lovers, who constantly broke the museums´record of entries. Our city gave birth to and nourished a unique culture of design, which in turn enriches our city´s cultural landscape and fosters its people´s appreciative eye.

It was at this moment that we came to observe a mature opportunity for organizing a design exhibition in Shenzhen. The art of design is a culture. As both the carrier and a component of a city´s outlook, it should express and illustrate its character and create its profile. The art of design is also a productivity. As a creative industry, it should be the dynamic for urban economy.

Designers are the hosts of design art. The exhibition was created and organized by specialized designers. Our jury panel is constituted of internationally prominent designers. All these guarantee the high standard and justness of the exhibition and promise for an integration with international design practices. The success of this exhibition owes much to the active participation of both domestic and overseas designers in not only entry submission, but also in organizational work. With over 1200 pieces of entry, the museum had an excellent learning experience, in that it has broadened its scope and has explored possibilities of reform in exhibition operations.

Innovation is the persistent theme of Shenzhen. As a new century opens its pages, with its full creativity, the art of design is ready to extend and enjoy the infinite sky of our city.
