Power Station of Art

From March 17 to May 20, psD, the Power Station of Design, will host the first-ever China solo for Japan’s highly-acclaimed graphic designer Masayoshi Nakajo. The exhibition will feature nearly 100 of Nakajo’s posters including 22 following the theme of "Mother & Others" created in 2016, 200 personal collected editions of Shiseido’s Hanatsubaki magazine that he contributed to between 1968 and 2011, and packaging designs for Shiseido Parlour, which are on large-scale display for the first time in China.

For the year-opening show at PSA, the five street-side metal boxes of psD will pick from Nakajo’s creative elements to launch the design center’s first-ever shopping window designs. It will also put on offer exclusively-developed home and stationery merchandises during the exhibition period. With even more events to dig into Japan’s design culture, Kaoru Kasai will join the exhibition’s opening lecture with Nakajo, bringing a dialogue between two of Japan’s pinnacle designers., Meanwhile Yasuhiro Sawada will tutor a psD School workshop and a screen printing workshop as a part of PSA’s public education series events to showcase the charms of design from different dimensions. This exhibition can be seen as a continuously self-renewed creative path over the past half century of Nakajo, who is acclaimed to be the chronicler of Japan’s graphic design history.
