On the 17th and 18th of July 2019, the opening ceremony for Fondation Cartier’s Junya Ishigami Freeing Architecture Exhibition was held at the Power Station of Art in Shanghai. The Power Station of Art (PSA) and the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain present the first solo exhibition in China for Japanese architect Junya Ishigami. Winner of the Venice Architecture Biennale’s Golden Lion award. “Junya Ishigami: Freeing Architecture.” is the second collaboration between PSA and the Fondation Cartier after “A Beautiful Elsewhere”, which showed the richness and diversity of its collection.
Liquid Impact was entrusted with the opening ceremony of the exhibition, which included a press conference, a seminar, an opening ceremony and a celebration dinner. In addition to the design and planning, Liquid Impact also assisted client communication with PSA and third parties. Despite a tight lead time and a long approval process to contend with, our experience of working with the PSA and our full understanding of the brand and the event, led us to successfully run the opening ceremony, presenting a visual experience of human, nature and construction.
