Benjamin Loyauté invited French curator of Design Shanghai 2013


The exhibition NighTtime-Dreamreal curated by Benjamin Loyauté is presented at the Power Station in Shanghai at the occasion of Design Shanghai 2013. The exhibition invites us to view the city in a different light, to understand its shape, its life, its language and its identity in the dark.

According to the curator “The city looks like a human body that is changing with time.” In the exhibition he developed the concept of the “ville-vie” in 4 parts focusing on the City Body:

Tomorrow’s Dream: aesthetic of the passage,

the Perception: When ethic meets sensory,

Creative District

 Daily Life: a Micro Vision.
