Design lecture by Brendan Cormier
    2018-February-2  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Can a copy be more than just a cheap version of an original? Throughout the last century, both counterfeits and the practice of copying products have been widely derided. They are seen as a threat to creativity, artistry and the economic livelihood of businesses. But while a copy most often cannot compete with the greatness of an original, are there any positive roles it can play?

The V&A Gallery’s curator Brendan Cormier will give a lecture titled “Copies: Tools for Creativity and Preservation” in Shekou on Sunday. In this lecture, Cormier will discuss these issues through two projects he has curated recently. The first, “Unidentified Acts of Design,” looks at Shenzhen’s creative landscape and several cases in which copying is seen as a wider iterative process for making new things. The second, “A World of Fragile Parts,” looks at the longer history of copying at museums and how copies are emerging as an important tool for preserving cultural heritage.

Cormier is the lead curator of the V&A Gallery at Design Society in Shenzhen. The V&A Gallery’s ongoing exhibition, “Values of Design,” brings together 250 objects from the V&A’s permanent collection in London to explore the different ways our values inform the design process, and the way design adds value. Prior to his work at the V&A, he acted as managing editor at Volume Magazine, an international thematic quarterly on architecture and urbanism.
