V&A Gallery

Adjacent to the Main Gallery is the V&A Gallery, a space that will strengthen Design Society’s discussions on the contemporary by framing a debate on values of design through objects that offer historical and global context. The V&A Gallery presents a diverse cross section of objects from the V&A’s own permanent collection. Carefully selected for and inspired by Shenzhen, the exhibition also presents new acquisitions to the V&A collection, sourced from Shenzhen itself.

Opening Times: 

Sunday - Thursday 10:00-20:30
Friday - Saturday 10:00-21:30

 

If values drive the design process, what we value will ultimately affect the way we design

The inaugural V&A exhibition Values of Design, designed by Sam Jacob Studio, is an exploration of our values, and how our values are reflected in the objects we choose to surround ourselves with. The largest international project the V&A has ever worked on, it provides a framework for a new and critical look at design.

In the context of contemporary China, the term ‘design’ has taken on many different values. From personal expression and problem solving to economic development.

By identifying several key values that have been driving design processes all over the world throughout the past two centuries, the objects in the exhibition either support or question these value claims, triggering the audience to reflect on how they value design themselves.

The V&A collection aims to contribute to the evolving design culture of China and Shenzhen in a meaningful way. Including regionally sourced objects, it reflects the dynamism and uniqueness of Shenzhen’s design scene, making connections between what is happening in the region today, and the extensive historical collection of the V&A.

V&A展馆主要展示具有历史意义和全球背景的物品。V&A展馆的展品,主要来自伦敦V&A博物馆的永久馆藏,这些藏品丰富多样且跨越多个领域;与此同时,策展团队通过深度调研深圳与珠三角的创意实践,为展览增加了新的藏品。

价值观驱使并影响着设计进程

V&A展馆的开幕展“设计的价值”探讨了两个主要话题:我们如何评判设计的价值,以及这又如何反过来影响设计。作为V&A迄今为止规模最大的国际项目,“设计的价值”为重新批判性地认识设计提供了独特框架。

在当代中国,“设计”一词拥有多重价值:在政策层面,它是经济发展的工具;在商业领域,它是打造成功产品的方式;对新兴中等收入人群而言,它可以用来彰显和定义他们的生活方式;而对学生和从业者来说,它是自我表达和解决棘手问题的工具。

我们着意探讨了过去两百年来推动国际设计进程的关键价值观:性能,解决问题,材料,身份,沟通,成本与奇观。297件展品或支持、或挑战了这些价值观,由此引发人们反思他们本身看待设计的方式。
