On Tuesday, the Beijing Minsheng Art Museum kicked off an exhibition designed by the award-winning designer Timmy Yip that features works from 12 of China's top artisans. 


Using light and space, Yip turns the Legend of Design exhibition into a dream-like venue for visitors to explore.  


Highlights of the exhibition include Crafting Happiness, a wood sculpture from Qu Feng, a sculptor and wooden antique restoration expert at the Palace Museum; and Always, a lacquerware by Gan Erke, an inheritor of the Huizhou lacquerware technique. 


The works on display are not limited to examples of traditional craftsmanship, but also comment on current events. For instance, artist Liu Tong brings the paper-folding work White Rhino to the exhibition. The work memorializes Sudan, the northern white rhino that died in March 2018 and was the last male member of its species.  


"Craftsmanship is the result of the interaction between natural laws and human intelligence. Its existence is a prerequisite for human society," wrote Su Dan, one of the exhibition's curators, in the preface. 


"Modern day media needs to follow the latest trends and use all means at its disposal to grow these trends. To restore the heart of craftsmanship, we should make stars of these masters of creation and make them icons for the masses to admire." 


The exhibition is set to run until October 28.
