Curated by Duomi Art Design Studio from Zhuhai, in partnership with China Design Centre from London, New Horizons is a showcase of Chinese and international art and design graduates from around the globe.

The exhibition aims to help young creatives across a range of disciplines including product and furniture design, visual communication, and fine art, make their mark on an international scale.

Senior Lecturer Grant Baker presented work from Nottingham Trent University’s (NTU) BA (Hons) Product Design and BA (Hons) Furniture and Product Design alumni Richard Chapman, Oli Hrubiak, Joe Parker, Alexander Taylor, Alice Walsh, and Marc Wood.

Grant told us: “The New Horizons exhibition allowed for the exposure of NTU’s courses and alumni, alongside other internationally renowned academies such as the Royal College of Art, University of the Arts London, and China Central Academy of Fine Arts.”

He continued: “It also presented a great networking opportunity, and we’ve been able to develop collaborative projects with Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and Chinese manufacturers.

“These collaborations will be integrated into our design courses, allowing our students to develop skills and connections in support of the ever-growing international design industry.”

Grant also had the opportunity to take part in a panel discussion alongside renowned design critics and authors, Charlotte and Peter Fiell.
