After being a success in Shanghai, the exhibition 'The Future of Fashion is Now' will travel to the OCT Art & Design Gallery in Shenzhen, located in China’s major manufacturing area. There it will be on show from 26 March to 31 July 2016. The exhibition, which was shown at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in the autumn of 2014, presents the fashion of the future as envisaged by the youngest generation of fashion designers. More than 25 up-and-coming fashion talents from around the world were invited to provide work, including eight designers from China and five from elsewhere in Asia, such as Dooling Jiang (China), Wang Lei (China), Zhang Da (China), Little Shilpa (India) and Movana Chen (China). The presentation also includes designs by respected Dutch innovators such as Viktor&Rolf, Iris van Herpen, Pauline van Dongen and Elisa van Joolen. As initiator and co-conceiver Han Nefkens announced before: in Shenzhen the exhibition will be expanded with new works by artists from China.

The ArtAids foundation was set up in 2006 at Han Nefkens’ initiative. ArtAids fights AIDS with the power of art as its most important weapon. ArtAids invites leading artists to produce work that is inspired by AIDS and related problems. These works of art are used to raise the public’s consciousness and to encourage their involvement.

Fundació Han Nefkens

The Han Nefkens Foundation is a private non-profit organisation that was set up in Barcelona in 2009 with the aim of promoting the production of contemporary artworks. The mission is to stimulate artistic creation in Barcelona by offering international artists an opportunity to create artworks and interventions in the city, and to promote other fields of contemporary creation.


Han Nefkens started to collect art in 2000. The H+F Collection, named after himself and his partner Felipe, is in long-term loan to various museums in The Netherlands and abroad. Nowadays Han Nefkens is not only active as a collector but also as an initiator of international art projects, often in collaboration with museums and other art institutions.
