Major design museum for China
The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) is to help create the first major museum of design in China.
Located in Shenzhen, the new design museum aims to promote Chinese design to an international audience, as well as present the best international design in China.
Working with China Merchants Group (CMG), one of the oldest and most influential companies in China, the V&A will play an advisory role in helping the Shekou Museum develop its own collections and provide training for Shekou Museum’s senior management team. A senior curator from the V&A will also take part in a three-year secondment in Shenzhen to work as head of the Shekou V&A partnership in China.
The new museum is scheduled to open at the end of 2016 in the Shekou district of Shenzhen, the city designated by UNESCO as the city of design and creative industries. The development of the museum is led by China Merchants Property Development Co., the real estate flagship of CMG which has commissioned a new museum building, designed by Japanese architecture studio Maki, led by Fumihiko Maki.
The V&A will have a dedicated gallery within the Shekou Museum to show curated displays from its collections as well as space to present major V&A exhibitions.
