NEW YORK, NY – Dec 9, 2019 – PIS Global presents Design Memo, a pop-up exhibition showcasing work by artists from the Council of Asian Designers of America (CADA), on view November 9 to December 1 at 415 Broadway. The opening reception took place on November 9 and welcomed Embassy councilors Mr. Xing and Ms. Xia, the head of CADA Richard Zhao, and over 300 attendants. Artists Bingyao Cheng, Donna Chi, and Jing Liu were selected as award recipients.
Design Memo was inspired by the concept of the memorandum and provides artists an occasion to showcase their most iconic work. Nearly forty international artists active in the United States, China, Japan, and London are represented, with work spanning across fine and applied art. The space doubles as a showroom for the emerging creatives to sell their work alongside American artists.
The exhibition was organized by CADA and produced by PIS Global Culture Inc.; a non-profit organization devoted to promoting young talents in the international art scene. Shaly Guo, a New York-based independent fashion designer who serves on CADA’s committee, organized Design Memo. Jingru Li, a fellow CADA member and independent curator whose passion for art has led her through many experiences integrating different themes into art crossover exhibitions, curated the exhibition. Chenyang Wang, an independent filmmaker who serves on CADA’s committee, oversaw the production of digital media including videos, website development and online advertising.
