From September 2018 to February 2019 The Dali Project was shown in the exhibition, “Craft: The Reset” at the newly opened Design Society in Shenzhen. Design Society is part of a collaborative new museum project exploring design and culture that has partnered with the V&A Museum in London. The show was comprised of four key themes: The vitality of traditional crafts, Craft methodology, Investment in new technologies and Craft Idealism, and in bringing these threads together the curators explain, “Craft: The Reset evaluates how creative practices are reinvigorating crafts from within, using this medium as an interface to engage with larger themes in contemporary society.” For more about the show, follow the link below.
La Biennale di Venezia
For the sixteenth edition of the Venice Biennale of Architecture in 2018, “Freespace,” The Dali Project was shown as part of the Across Chinese Cities exhibition — a survey of critical, progressive projects being undertaken in China. The exhibition was brought together as a whole under the rubric of “The Community: The Object Spaces and Rituals of the Collective.” The show aimed to present a multiplicity of perspectives in new types of collective living, working, exchange, mobility, etc… interspersed within the rapidly shifting terrain of China’s contemporary urban, rural, and in-between spatio-temporal realms. The venue of the exhibition was the Palazzo at Ca’Tron — a part of the historic campus of the Università Iuav di Venezia.
For a month in June-July of 2017, The Dali Project was presented as a pop-up exhibition and sale in the flagship store of Klee Klee, on Anfu Lu in Shanghai. Klee Klee, the phrase for “slowly” in Tibetan, is the sustainable fashion label who belongs under the creative umbrella of the multi-faceted Chinese fashion house, Zuc Zug. Not only was this exhibition a chance to test sales of the products with a knowledgeable and interested urban audience — it was an opportunity to present the stories and processes behind the making of the textiles themselves.
