In partnership with the design-oriented stores Project No. 8 and 8b, Mannam (Korean for meeting) investigates the relationships between Korean and non-Korean designers. Participants are invited to start with one-on-one dialogues, and to generate form that responds to both their developing dialogue, and the context of the commercial space. Recording or keeping a record of these dialogues in some way is required, and at the project’s completion, the curators will search the transcripts for significant moments, engage in a dialogue of our own, and publish a survey and archive of the project.
Participants: E Roon Kang & Christian Marc Shimidt, Jae Jeon & Abi Huynh, Yoonjai Choi & Ken Meier, Chris Ro & Huy Vu, Min Lew & Koen Malfait. Exhibit photography courtesy of all artists and designers.
