Projects and Exhibitions
As a creative studio, Triple-Major organizes and curates events or exhibitions to bridge the gaps between the identities of designers, galleries, retailers and customers. In 2009, we curated and organized “Project White T-Shirt”, inviting 31 progressive designers to recreate the white t-shirt, a timeless classic. Project White T-shirt was exhibited in galleries and shops worldwide to raise funds for Designers Against AIDs. Later on, designer label ffiXXed, fashion blogger Facehunter and artist Woog were among many with whom we had collaborations with for our in-house exhibitions. We also curate regular "Nomad Store" projects, bringing labels represented by us with our own designs to different cities around the world, utilizing each city’s local resources and absorbing their characteristics like nomads. These sporadic, short-termed, traveling stores had so-far left their footprints in Hong Kong, Shanghai , Los Angeles, London and Milan.
We are cordially announcing a solo exhibition of Woog in Beijing. " DI DAH DIT DI DI DAH is Woog remixes Stephen Smith, a UK based artist. Through digital prints and videos, Woog explores and captures the displacement of medium, images, language, sound and as a result creating a completely new vernacular. Perhaps this is the Morse code for an apocalyptic age? This series of work is a continuation of Woog's previous exhibition at O.WW in Shanghai. For this exhibition, Woog collaborates with Triple Major to produce limited edition shirts and bags. These items will be available for sale at Triple-Major and other online / offline shops around the world. Please come by the opening on 5/26 Thursday starting at 19:00.

Triple-Major Nomad Store: Hong Kong was the first stop in traveling retail experiment, Nomad Store Project. The project aims to bring global avant-garde designers to different cities in a sporadic retail experiment. The traveling project will include a mix of established international talents such as Fabrics Interseason, Patrik Ervell and Pelican Avenue as well as experimental designers Anntian, Daniel Palillo, Mundi and Rozalb de Mura.
Each Nomad Store appropriates local elements and attempt to fit its local environment. Inspired by the heavily mass-marketed but often disregarded advertisements by real estate agencies in Hong Kong, Triple-Major's first nomad store is disguised as a real estate agency, with its windows and interior covered by real estate ads. Chinese avant-garde label, ccchu, will also create an installation in the store to show their new collection.
Australian collaborative art and design project ffiXXed had their first solo exhibition at Triple-Major in October 2010, presenting a series of new works that examine the cultural, social and economic dimensions of contemporary consumer lifestyle. Appropriating elements of interior design, architecture, fashion, and various other forms of personal and found imagery, ffiXXed respond to Triple Major’s multifunctional space (gallery/office/shop/cafe), integrating their own objects, images and products to reconstruct a more fluid approach the personal, social and consumer activities that take place within these designated spaces.
Project White T-Shirt is an exhibition in which 31 avant-garde and innovative fashion designers from 13 different countries were invited to transform, recreate and redefine the basic white T-shirt.
