Revelations China is the first economic, cultural and institutional platform dedicated to the contemporary crafts sector to be developed in China. It will have a huge impact on the perception of these creative know-how in Chinese society.

I feel invested with a mission to bring together all those involved in the decorative arts, design and creation around this biennial event, which is certainly French in spirit, but open to China, Asia and the World.

As its director, I'm honoured to shape the innovative values and contents of Revelations China's alongside our unfailing partners Beijing Design Week and Ateliers d'Art de France.

Li Yanfeng
Revelations China Director

“The seed of Révélations has been planted in me since its first edition in Paris, in 2013, a date since which I have seen the content and ambition of this commercial, cultural and institutional platform grow and become unique and major for the fine craft sector.

Its DNA has always allowed us to think about international deployment. China was an obvious choice, both because of the undeniable anchoring of know-how in Chinese culture and daily life, and because it offers incredible opportunities for economic growth for craft studios in China and around the world. Its cultural heart, Beijing, will be the perfect host.

This type of fair, dedicated to the creative space between fine craft and contemporary art, has never before existed in China. In particular, Revelations China will provide Chinese artists of materiality with a new, hitherto non-existent space for expression and exchange.

In a more intimate setting than its Parisian sister, Revelations China targets 200 exceptional, innovative and sincere artists, sensitive bridges between a certain vision of tradition and unbridled artistic freedom.

I look forward to welcoming many of you to this first edition of Revelations China, in September 2024.”

Romain Juilha
International Commissioner of Revelations China

Revelations China, China’s first exhibition dedicated to contemporary craft, bridges the gap between contemporary art and craft and unites individuals and organizations in art, craft, and design. Despite its French DNA and located in China, art, craft, and design is universal.

As a curator, I presented "East Design Show", a communication platform for global designers and artisans at China International Furniture Expo for 7 years. A decade ago, collaborating with Beijing Design Week, we brought Chinese design to Milan with "Take a Seat". Now, reuniting for the mission to bring world crafts to China.

China, renowned for crafts, makes Beijing the ideal location for the first overseas Revelations.”
