“Shifting Objectives : Design from the M+ Collection” – exhibition & members-only preview

November 23, 2016 At the end of this month, M+’s debut design exhibition Shifting Objectives: Design from the M+ Collection opens at the M+ Pavilion. Featuring more than 120 key objects and works dating from the 1930s until now – including mid-twentieth century Japanese furniture, familiar products from Hong Kong’s manufacturing heyday, drones, ‘copied’ goods, and digitally-enabled and open-source practices – this groundbreaking show illustrates how design philosophy and practice has changed from the post-Second World War period until now.
