Design is an important part of the society. It can stand alone as an individual art form; it can be a crossover art form integrated with all kinds of modern and technological product.

In this exhibition, prominent designers were invited to design moon-shaped fans, embodying their rich Taiwanese culture by alluding to natural, cultural sceneries and heritages. The end result of each design reflects the integration of profuse cultural meanings and each artist’s style and observation. These designs give the traditional and ornamental moon-shaped fan a modern, innovative aesthetic, while exuding deeply-rooted Taiwanese imagery and cultural values.

These works are on loan from the TGDA (Taiwan Graphic Design Association), which has continuously urged Taiwanese designers to donate their efforts to exalt literature and originality of Taiwan. Taipei cultural Center of TECO in New York has been actively bringing Taiwan’s cultures to North America and strengthened cultural promotion considerably since 2002.
