About DX

 

Established in 1994, Design Exchange, a registered charitable, not-for-profit cultural institution, is Canada’s only museum dedicated exclusively to the pursuit of design excellence and preservation of design heritage. At the crossroads of multiple disciplines, from furniture and architecture to graphics and fashion, DX exhibitions and talks are curated to reflect the popular zeitgeist and contemporary culture, while demonstrating the relevance and importance of design to everyday life. Under a renewed strategic vision that launched in March 2012, DX has hosted renowned traveling exhibitions from prestigious cultural institutions across the globe, including Stefan Sagmeister’s The Happy Show and Design Museum London’s Christian Louboutin retrospective, alongside its own This Is Not A Toy, guest curated by Pharrell Williams and Politics of Fashion | Fashion of Politics, guest curated by Jeanne Beker. Building design awareness and education from its downtown Toronto location in the historic Toronto Stock Exchange building, the museum attracts thousands of visitors of all ages.
