On 28 October, Queen Máxima of the Netherlands will officially open an exhibition of the work of some 25 International fashion designers during Her Majesty’s state visit to China. The Future of Fashion is Now, originally shown in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in the autumn of 2014, presents the fashion of the future as seen by the newest generation of fashion designers. More than 25 young fashion talents from across the world, including eight from China, were invited to submit work. The exhibition also includes designs by respected Dutch innovators like Viktor & Rolf, Iris van Herpen and Pauline van Dongen. At the invitation of DutchCulture, Elisa van Joolen, Pauline van Dongen, Imme van der Haak and Antoine Peters are also traveling to China to share their expertise. These designers are actively seeking innovation in the fashion world. Futuristic technologies, sustainable clothing and new manufacturing processes for recycling materials and products are their starting points for designing the fashion of tomorrow. The new generation of Chinese designers is also actively busy with this at present. In conjunction with the exhibition, an intercultural programme has been organised, for various fashion schools and designers from the Netherlands and China have been invited to exchange their expertise.
Tsung-Dao Lee, a famous physicist and winner of Nobel Prize in Physics, initiated Shanghai International Science & Art Exhibition (SISAE) with Professor Guanzhong Wu who is an artist well-known by the whole world. These two masters from different areas were pursuing the common truth between science and art, as well as advocated individuals to explore them through combing artistic expression and scientific thinking mutually. Moreover, the science and the art increasingly tend to get on intimate terms with people and society, resulting in the science popularized and the art spread. And consequently, the SISAE emerged and experienced 10 years.
Making science come close to the public and integrating art into our life
Harmonious Integration, Innovation
