A brief show at the RCA features work by Soonhak Kwon and Suhee Kim, among others. Note that despite the poster and what it says on the RCA website, one of the exhibitors tells me the exhibition closes on 4 October, not 11 October.
30 September 2015 to 4 October 2015 | 10am – 5pm
Lower Gulbenkian Gallery | Royal College of Art | Kensington Gore | London SW7 2EU
A selection of research projects from Photography, Textiles, Fashion and Design Products and Interior Design, featuring the meeting of orient and occident within modernity.
This exhibition includes work by Mingjing Lin, Tsai Chun Huang, Xi Jia, Wuthigrai Siriphon, Rui Xu, Soon-Hak Kwon, Jin-Joo Ma, and Suhee Kim, founder members of the Far East Study Group. These researchers find, in the meeting of East and Western traditions of art and design, a new space of innovation and synergy. Their practice spans a range of design disciplines from experimental practice with materials, to fashion, photography, product and interaction design and textiles. The show includes research into sustainability in fashion and textiles with a collaborative project by Rui Xu, University of California and the China Central Academy of Fine Art.
Workshops discussions with the participants will take place during the week of 2–9 October.
