In the lead up to and under the pretext of this summer's Beijing Olympic Games, China-themed events are proliferating around the globe. The largest is Britain's expansive, yearlong "China Now" series, a highlight of which is the "China Design Now" exhibition running now through July 13 at London's Victoria & Albert Museum.
"The levels of energy and experimentation in China are at an all-time high, and over the next five years we are going to see its global impact," says co-curator Lauren Parker, adding the exhibition focuses on the pioneers of design who are shaping China's cultural landscape.
