Museum of Costume and Lace | Crinolines & Cie. The Bourgeoisie on Display

Museum of Costume and Lace | Crinolines & Cie. The Bourgeoisie on Display | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Brussels | 28.05.2015 - 10.04.2016

"The crinoline initially took the form of an underskirt fitted with horsehair (from which it takes its name), reinforced with whalebone, making it very heavy. It would then spread out using concentric hoops made of wicker, then metal. [...]
There are all kinds of crinoline: from cage crinolines which only reveal the metal structure, skillfully constructed to guarantee better movement, to those whose structure is concealed in a fabric underskirt. Their shape changes over time, in accordance with the prevailing fashion and technological advances, but all create an extravagantly shaped silhouette."

Tilburg | 14.12.2014 - 14.06.2015

"On 14 December the TextielMuseum will open a new exhibition, by TextielMuseum presents Bye TextielMuseum. The TextielLab, the museum’s innovation centre, collaborated with renowned designers to develop a range of exclusive household textiles for the museum’s collection. Research from the existing collection served as a source of inspiration, ensuring that culture and craftsmanship are passed on to and further developed by future generations. The textiles will be added to the new label by TextielMuseum. Guest curated by Jules van den Langenberg, the exhibition will display the results of these collaborations in an exciting and engaging way. Underscoring the utilitarian nature of the striking napkins, tablecloths and tea towels, Langenberg will send a selection of items to six destinations, packed in a suitcase designed especially for this cultural journey by Studio Minale Maeda. Based on the idea of a travelling exhibition and the format of a Tupperware party, the products will be unpacked, displayed, touched and evaluated, allowing those present to experience the quality and beauty for themselves."

The Art Institute of Chicago | Ireland: Crossroads of Art and Design, 1690–1840

The Art Institute of Chicago | Ireland: Crossroads of Art and Design, 1690–1840 | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Chicago | 17.03.2015 - 07.06.2015

"Presenting over 300 objects drawn from public and private collections across North America—as well as the Art Institute’s own important collection of Irish decorative and fine arts—this exhibition is the first to explore the rich and complex art and culture of Ireland during the long 18th century. The seeds for the exhibition were first planted by historian Desmond Fitzgerald, 29th Knight of Glin, who in his 2007 book, Irish Furniture, outlined his vision for “a major exhibition on Ireland’s decorative arts of the 18th century, which would . . . waken up the world to a staggering array of art that was manufactured in Ireland during this period.” Surprisingly, such an exhibition has never before been undertaken on either side of the Atlantic. Ireland: Crossroads of Art and Design, 1690–1840 expands on the Knight of Glin’s vision to also include paintings, sculpture, and architecture. Irish book bindings, ceramics, glass, furniture, metalwork, musical instruments, and textiles are also featured in a series of “Made in Ireland” galleries highlighting Dublin, Cork, Belfast, and Waterford as centers of production."
