After 7 years reporting on Scoop.it on design exhibitions in museums and art galleries around the world, we have decided to turn this project into a collaborative one through the hashtag #designexhibitions on Twitter. 

We invite people and institutions to inform the community about new design exhibitions. 

We will continue searching and reporting on good exhibitions, convinced of the usefulness of sharing this knowledge to enjoy design.

Textiel Museum | Colour & Abstraction . Generations in Dialogue

Textiel Museum | Colour & Abstraction . Generations in Dialogue | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Tilburg | 17.03.2018 - 03.03.2019

"The TextielMuseum presents a broad spectrum of abstract textile works from the 1960s to the present. Spanning more than half a century, the works bring two generations of artists and designers into dialogue with each other. The exhibition features pieces by both the older generation, which explores colour and abstraction through the medium of textile, and the younger generation, which is interested in colour and abstraction as a subject. Films, sketches and samples illustrating the creative process are also included."

Zurich | 03.03.2018 - 31.12.2019
"Large-scale design history: From its beginnings over 100 years ago to the present day, the pictorial poster has achieved impressive stylistic diversity. Icons line up alongside rediscoveries, from early painterly and narrative posters through pure typeface posters, which rely solely on expressive lettering, to artistic experiments with photography and recent designs using digital techniques. Together, they illustrate a wide variety of design approaches and convey the great innovative power of poster culture. With its poster collection, the museum holds one of the world’s most important archives of this medium."

Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya | William Morris and the Arts & Crafts movement in Great Britain

Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya | William Morris and the Arts & Crafts movement in Great Britain | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Barcelona | 23.02.2018 - 20.05.2018

"The Arts and Crafts movement, linked to design and decorative arts, was born in Great Britain around 1880 and it was developed until the First World War. It spread rapidly throughout America and Europe until reaching Japan. Its maximum ideologist was the artist and writer William Morris (1834-1896) and took its name from the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society, founded in London in 1887.[...] The exhibition would be the first by Morris and the Arts & Crafts to be held in Spain and will present the masterpieces from this artistic movement."

Atlanta | 22.02.2018 - 

 "As our cities become more and more densely populated, we must design spaces for play into them. MODA’s exhibition, Designing Playful Cities, takes visitors through interactive installations that present a strong case for designing play into urban environments, encourage visitors of all ages to engage in play in their day-to-day activities, and inspire designers and developers to create playful spaces in our cities, whether by designing proper playgrounds for children or by converting under-utilized spaces into fun and friendly places."

Tokyo | 21.02.2018 - 25.02.2018
 " 'Eventually, each and every garment will be unique and different.' This is what Yuima Nakazato envisions as the future of mankind. Based on this vision, Yuima Nakazato developed an innovative method to manufacture clothes without sewing. Assembling clothes with originally developed parts called "Units" makes it possible to freely combine and rearrange their design, size, and materials, leading to garments that harmonize with everyone who wears them.This exhibition features the latest collection of Yuima Nakazato introduced at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week in January, 2018"

CID Grand Hornu | Do you see the king? Patrick Marchal

CID Grand Hornu | Do you see the king? Patrick Marchal | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

22.10.2017 - 11.02.2018

"A Citizen of interstellar spaaaaaaace with sculptural ambitions and metallic structures, Patrick Marchal plays with colour and iconic symbols. What matters “is the message that is conveyed”. A silversmith-visual artist, creator of Unidentified Prestigious Objects with evocative names, he explodes classical conventions of jewellery, imposing himself through a critical approach and scathing humour. No one is bound by the impossible, so therefore everything is permitted. Marked by a visual culture, his work expresses a reality that is taken to the extreme and revealed in objects of finery. The metal or steel become bombs, cartridges…and adornments!"

New York | 13.06.2017 - 04.02.2018

"Featuring works of Japanese bamboo art dating from the late 19th century to the present—the period when basketry in Japan became recognized as an art form that transcends "craft"—this loan exhibition showcases more than 80 bamboo baskets and sculptures created by accomplished artists, including all six masters who have received the designation "Living National Treasure." Highlighting key stages in the modern history of Japanese bamboo art, the exhibition is drawn from the Abbey Collection, one of the finest private collections of Japanese baskets and bamboo sculpture; most of the works have never before been presented in public."

Phoenix Art Museum | A tribute to James Galanos | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Phoenix | 19.08.2017 - 07.01.2018
"Beginning in August, Phoenix Art Museum presents A Tribute to James Galanos, a retrospective dedicated to the iconic American fashion designer. Featuring more than 40 couture-quality, ready-to-wear ensembles and accessories, including an ensemble worn and donated by former First Lady Nancy Reagan, the exhibition will illuminate the designer’s influence and legacy with objects from the 1950s through the 1990s.“A black dress,” Galanos once said, “reveals everything: line, cut, drape, seaming. It must be perfection.” From his selection of the finest fabrics to his impeccable construction and finishing, the designer’s exacting standards resulted in an elegant simplicity that became a hallmark of his work."

Museu del Disseny de Barcelona | Adolf Loos. Private Spaces

Museu del Disseny de Barcelona | Adolf Loos. Private Spaces | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Barcelona | 14.12.2017 - 25.02.2018 

"The exhibition Adolf Loos. Private Spaces presents, for the first time in Spain, a vast display of the work of this outstanding figure in Viennese architecture, a pioneer in the debate between spaces in public and private life. The show highlights the aesthetic revolution led by Loos (1870-1933) when, in the Austrian capital at the turn of the twentieth century, he rebelled against the Viennese Secession, proposing economy in architectural construction and design, reviving the classical column and facing and the traditional values of the classical style."

Cristobal Balenciaga Museoa | Cristóbal Balenciaga, fashion and heritage

Cristobal Balenciaga Museoa | Cristóbal Balenciaga, fashion and heritage | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Getaria | 24.03.2018 - 27.01.2019

"This year, 2018 – European Year of Heritage – marks the 50th anniversary since the Master of Haute Couture retired in 1968. An opportunity to reflect on the heritage value of Cristóbal Balenciaga’s work from the moment of closing his salons and stopping activity at his workshops in Paris, Madrid, Barcelona and San Sebastián. This is the starting point of the exhibition Cristóbal Balenciaga, fashion and heritage, the moment that Balenciaga’s creations left the streets and salons to inhabit the archives, galleries and museums. No longer lending beauty to bodies to become admired as beautiful in themselves. Leaving the covers of the fashion magazines for those dedicated to art and losing their exclusive patina to become accessible to all publics in all social circles. In this dialogue of Fashion and Heritage we want to follow both roads, precisely taking 1968 as the year of their confluence. One runs from that date until today, revealing to the public the path of patrimonial consolidation intimately linked to our reason to be as a museum, and the other, starting in 1917 – opening date of his first atelier in San Sebastián – until the moment his maisons closed their doors, in order to understand Balenciaga’s creative progression, evolution and revolution since those early days.

"La mostra presenta una àmplia selecció de dibuixos, documents, fotografies i objectes que els arquitectes Lluís Clotet i Òscar Tusquets van crear al llarg d'aquests anys. L'exposició ha estat comissariada i dissenyada pels propis arquitectes i mostra un recorregut cronològic i transversal per tota la seva obra [...] L’exposició ultrapassa el camp de l’edificació i l’urbanisme per estendre’s també al mobiliari i l’audiovisual.[...] Tusquets i Clotet van començar la seva pràctica professional conjunta l’any 1964 amb la fundació de l’Studio PER, estudi compartit amb els arquitectes Pep Bonet i Cristian Cirici. La seva associació professional va durar fins a 1984, moment en què l’estudi es divideix."

Fashion and Textile Museum | The Secret Life of Scissors | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
London | 09.02.2018 - 06.05.2018
"This display explores the complex multiple lives of scissors; everyday objects, universal tools but also ambiguous ‘things’, surrounded by superstition, myth and symbolism. From antiquity to modern times, scissors have remained irreplaceable and indispensable tools that also reveal an intimate human bond; their worn surfaces bearing witness to lives lived. The Secret Life of Scissors explores these different narratives in a sequence of themes: life and death, fairy tales, crime, punk and more, constantly mirroring the double-edged nature of this familiar yet mysterious object."

New York | 09.02.2018 - 14.04.2018
"Norman Norell (1900-1972) one of the greatest fashion designers of the mid-twentieth century, is best remembered for redefining sleek, sophisticated, American glamour. This retrospective exhibition presents approximately 100 garments, accessories, and related material chosen by designer Jeffery Banks. Many of the objects come from the private collection of designer Kenneth Pool. They are a testament to the breadth of Norell’s creativity and his enduring impact on fashion. This array of suits, jersey separates, menswear-inspired outerwear, and Norell’s hallmark sequined “mermaid” dresses reflects the profound respect these contemporary designers have for Norell and his oeuvre."

The Museum at FIT | The Body: Fashion and Physique | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
New York | 05.12.2017 - 05.05.2018
"The fashionable body is a cultural construct that has shifted throughout history to emphasize different shapes and proportions. However, the fashionable ideal does not feel so fluid in daily life. It can appear to be a fixed expectation, affecting how we view and treat our bodies, as well as how we view the bodies of others. The Body: Fashion and Physique explores the complex history of the “ideal” fashion body and the variety of body shapes that have been considered fashionable from the eighteenth century to the present. The exhibition also examines the relationship between fashion and body politics. Garments are supplemented with images from the popular press, fashion media, film, and other sources to demonstrate how the fashion industry has contributed to both the marginalization and celebration of certain body types within our culture."

MAXXI | Corpo, movimento, struttura. Contemporary jewellery and its construction | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Roma | 15.11.2017 - 18.02.2018
"A piece of jewellery is an object open to multiple readings, the first traditionally being aesthetic, regarding both the intrinsic beauty of the work and the idea of beauty that a jewel succeeds in conveying and transmitting. Alongside this plane exists structural research, in which what counts is the complexity of the structure of the jewellery and therefore the idea and the form. Here jewellery design finds many factors in common with architecture: albeit with different ends and scales, jewellery and architecture both relate to the body in movement, to which they respond with a structure capable of “inhabiting” that body or allowing it to inhabit a space."
