Unseen Collaborations

16 Jun 2023 18:00 - 19:00 The Screening Room

This panel will bring together LDB23’s Nigeria and Italy pavilions to discuss the historic and contemporary design practices in Italy and Nigeria. Both pavilions explore unexpected intercontinental connections, design production and cycles, whether historic design networks can effectively tackle today’s most pressing issues, and how cultural custodians can evolve to effectively serve their communities through remapping collaborations.
