“Process: Sense Making” – Culture is the strategy, action, practice, and manifesto for people to face the social environment and reality. In 2017 Creative Expo Taiwan, the curatorial team does not take the design, industry and craft goods as a showcase of cultural symbol; instead, the team uses issues as a main concept through the conversation between different sectors to propose the different imagination of cultural path of the spectrum of “Wonderful Life.” The discussion of contemporary culture in Taiwan across the generations is the multifaceted context of the exhibition – the fruit of the curatorial process. “Design” is no longer what you might think before, so is “Manufacturing.”
As the curatorial concept this year “CULTURAL EXPLOSION”,it represents the energy of younger generation, the desire of change and creation, sense of life, the multidisciplinary collaboration, different interfaces and mediums, and different paths and strategies that is the energy to stimulate the fireworks of culture, industry and design. This sensational action will become an exhibition.
