Shifting Objectives

Design from the M+ Collection

M+’s debut design exhibition – Shifting Objectives: Design from the M+ Collection – explores the many concepts and frameworks that have shaped and broadened our understanding of design. Featuring dozens of key objects and works – from mid-twentieth century Japanese furniture, to familiar products from Hong Kong’s manufacturing heyday, to drones, ‘copied’ goods, and digitally-enabled and open-source practices – this groundbreaking show illustrates how design philosophies and practices have changed from the post-Second World War period until now. In so doing, Shifting Objectives outlines the growing contours of the M+ design collection, which is the first of its kind in Asia and a core pillar of M+.

In the run up to the opening of the M+ building in 2019, the M+ Pavilion functions as a temporary home for M+ exhibitions and events.
