Evolving Design for Performance, Beijing

January 17th, 2016

This exposition at the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing showcased world-class designers for performance and the internationally renowned European institutions from which they come. This was the first exhibition of its kind, curated by Michael Pavelka and Peter Farley, and it welcomed over 20,000 visitors.

The event placed a spotlight on the stage designer’s process from initial idea to final production and covered the full range of Design for Theatre and Performance. In essence, the exhibition’s design and curation saw the show as a ‘garden of ideas’ that focused on the differences and nuances of design approaches across Europe.

LATEST: The exhibition now plans to transfer to the Mingyan Contemporary Art Museum, Shanghai, in late 2016/early2017.
