The exhibition will present dynamic works by independent designers working in the intersection between design, art, and crafts, selected from 11 countries. Crossovers celebrates the designers and communities playing a vital role in maintaining and renewing today’s design and crafts culture.
The show will highlight the aesthetic traits and beauty of each scene, facilitating a cross-cultural dialogue – a dialogue not only focused on design, but evolved to highlight cultural and societal issues.
