Research on the Move: Dialogues with M+/ Design Trust Research Fellows

Research is fundamental to deepening and rethinking how the ‘designed’ world came to be. The practice of research is shaped by evolving hypotheses, sites, perspectives, and evidence. ‘Research on the Move’ brings together eight M+ / Design Trust Research Fellows from 2015 to 2019. In this reunion, the fellows will converse with Hong Kong–based practitioners who have been influential in exploring similar fields through a series of topic-orientated dialogues.

The dialogues will reflect on how past research inquiries were or are being shaped by the fellows’ continuous research trajectories, and how they resonate with the works of each practitioner. Organised to mark M+’s recent opening and Design Trust’s continued support, this event aims to stimulate further development in historical and practice-based research and reconsider the museum’s role in these endeavours.

There will be two reflection sessions moderated by M+ Curators of Design and Architecture Sunny Cheung and Shirley Surya. Simultaneous interpretation in Cantonese will be available.

About the Fellowship

The M+ / Design Trust Research Fellowship was established in 2015, six years before the opening of M+, to cultivate such a practice by support historians, practitioners, or curators, from and beyond Hong Kong. It is framed as a form of curatorial research into the histories and processes of design and architectural production in Hong Kong and the region. The fellows’ research, in turn, could inform M+’s approach in curating, collecting, and knowledge-sharing with our audiences.


About Our Partner

Design Trust was established as a grant-funding and community platform in 2014 by Hong Kong Ambassadors of Design, a registered charity in Hong Kong since 2007. Design Trust supports creative projects that develop expertise and build research initiatives and content related to Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area. Working across a multiplicity of design disciplines, from graphics, media, and architecture to the built environment, Design Trust aims to actively accelerate creative research, design, and the development of meaningful projects that advocate for the positive role of design.
