DMA - Design Métiers d'Art
Museu da Cidade - Black Pavilion
Sep 17 - Oct 30

In an uncertain economic context where industrial production displays a certain tendency towards “exile,” the arts and crafts professions are going through a key phase of their development. In this age of opening borders and weakening certainties regarding cultural identity, it is important to renew the relationship between this sector and the public (in the broad sense of the term) and to enrol local action in a global dynamic of progress, creating feelings of well-being, added merit, and a strong identity.

In the past decade, the extension of communication networks like the internet and computers and the opening up of markets towards globalisation have produced a flood of new social, cultural, and economic ideas which have drastically changed our notions of consumption and citizenship, as well as our global vision.

The associative action of Design Metiers d’art has set itself up as a source of and catalyst for new economic, social, and cultural singularity and identity, as much in our fundamental principles as in the form and means through which we will continue to create and grow in the future.
