The Sister School Exhibition of Art and Design features work by students and staff from the Otago Polytechnic and the Shanghai University of Engineering and Science (SUES).
A delegation of eight SUES staff members attended the opening.
SUES university council chairman Teng Jianyong said the works portrayed the integration of society, the economy, culture, and nature. Mr Jianyong said Dunedin, a ''charming and beautiful coastal city'', had the right atmosphere for the joint exhibition.
Otago Polytechnic communications director Mike Waddell said the partnership was part of the polytech's ''internationalisation strategy'', and presented opportunities for both institutions.
''For example, six of our fashion design students showed at Shanghai Fashion Week this year, while SUES staff member Alice Yao came to study in Dunedin and has become the first graduate of our Master of Design Enterprise degree.''
The works, computer-generated urban design concepts, are based on the idea of fitting design into the environment. The exhibition will be open until mid-January.
