The exhibition “Women’s Eyes - Women x Design x Society” shows artworks created by world-renowned female designers for international exchanges of visual arts.

Prof. Hsiao-Pei Hou from AU is invited as one of the nine contributors of works to the International Exhibition of “Women’s Eyes - Women x Design x Society.”

As a support to the promotion of Taipei to become the World Design Capital of 2016, the Graphic Design Association of Taiwan, R.O.C., and the Farglory Museums, with the sponsorship from the Department of Cultural Affairs of Taipei City Government, hosted an international exhibition recently, entitled “Women’s Eyes - Women x Design x Society.” It features contributions from nine world-renowned female designers from Denmark, Turkey, Mexico, Bolivia, Iran, Japan, Malaysia, and Taiwan. The exhibition started from Dec. 9 in Taipei. The title of the event echoes the theme of Taipei World Design Capital by promoting the concepts and practices of “social designs” through the designers’ unique viewpoints, delicate sensitivity, and professional expertise.

One of the nine invited famous visual-art designers is a lady coming from Taiwan, namely, Professor Hsiao-Pei Hou from the Visual Communication Design Department at Asia University. The others are all world-renowned female designers, namely, Gitte Kath from Denmark, Yesim Demir fromTurkey, Lourdes Zolezzi from Mexico, Susana Machicao Pacheco from Bolivia, Parisa Tashakori from Iran, Shigeno Araki from Japan, and GiGi Lee from Malaysia.

Professor Hou has a personal area for exhibiting her own designs. She pointed out that everybody of the nine famous participating designers provides design works of various topics of social cares through their respective unique visions, sharp sensitivity, and professional knowledge. The diversified topics cover poster design, book design, package design, total design, etc. It is a major hope of the exhibition that the works can help to further promote the adoption of multiple viewpoints to observe the society and the world.
