About the DX
The Design Exchange (DX) is Canada’s only museum dedicated exclusively to the pursuit of design excellence and preservation of design heritage through the delivery of a range of engaging and enriching public programs and exhibitions. At a crossroads of multiple disciplines from furniture and architecture to graphics and fashion, DX exhibitions and talks reflect contemporary culture, and aim to demonstrate and highlight the relevancy and importance of design to everyday life.
The DX is a registered non-profit charity.
As of March, 2012 the Design Exchange has taken a revitalized strategic direction and refined mandate - to promote the relevancy and experience of design to as large a number of people as possible, the DX will now be exclusively a Design Museum. Covering off the various design disciplines including fashion, architecture, interior and industrial design, digital design and more, exhibitions and programming will explore designers, products, projects or themes that have broad public appeal and reflect popular contemporary culture. Newly appointed President, Shauna Levy, leads this new direction offering renowned traveling exhibits from prestigious cultural institutions across the globe, a new city-wide cultural component, a greater focus on educational experiences for the public, including youth and adults, and a rollout of programming that will extend across the country.
