GATHERING – From Domestic Craft to Contemporary Process
3/7/2014 – 1/11/2014
Curators: Lidewij Edelkoort and Philip Fimmano
GATHERING features a survey of the ground-breaking 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE collection by the legendary Japanese designer.
Disdain for a boring global market coupled with a fear of the virtualisation of society has inspired designers to create work that is linked to the humanisation of the making process and the contextualisation of a more responsible lifestyle. Craft has therefore become one of the major movements of our time and can be understood as the repetition of skills that belong to our common past, exuding a sense of belonging and continuity.
