MINDCRAFT18

The chosen focus of MINDCRAFT18 is on the essence of the work with design and craft. In this year’s exhibition, the objects on display take centre stage, with an emphasis on the hands-on engagement with the material and the visual, aesthetic and sensuous qualities of the objects. The Danish Arts Foundation appointed Ditte Hammerstrøm curator of MINDCRAFT18. MINDCRAFT18 is on display from 17 through 22 April in central Milan during the design week, where the historical San Simpliciano cloister forms the setting for the exhibition.

Address:
San Simpliciano, Piazza Paolo VI 6,
20121 Milan

Opening hours:
Monday, 16 April, press preview at 15.00–19.00
Tuesday: 11.00–23.00
Wednesday–Saturday: 11.00–20.00
Sunday: 11.00–17.00

Exhibition design supported by Kvadrat
