We tend to take what we know about design and architecture for granted, often based on assumptions rooted in history, culture, and geopolitics. But what happens when you change those assumptions? This talk presented by Aric Chen, lead curator for design and architecture at West Kowloon Cultural District’s M+ Hong Kong will focus on how the museum aims to reveal lesser-known Asian narratives of design and architecture, while revisiting familiar global ones from the museum’s vantage point in Hong Kong, China, and Asia.
Aric Chen’s visit to Melbourne is made possible by the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund. You can now revisit this talk over at MPavilion’s library page.
