a new exhibition in Tilburg

'Family Wall Hanging' by Kiki van Eijk (collection: TextielMuseum, Tilburg)


Trend forecaster and design curator Lidewij Edelkoort will present contemporary creative textile design in Talking Textiles at the renowned TextileMuseum from September 28, 2012 – January 26, 2014.


The 2013 Talking Textiles exhibition has been especially expanded for the TextielMuseum to include new or rarely seen items, some of them exhibited in the Netherlands for the first time. Recent Design Academy Eindhoven graduate designers will also be showcased as part of Edelkoort’s ongoing effort to promote fresh design talent, including a sensorial carpet by Italian designer Daniel Costa, intricately printed textiles by Dienke Dekker and fabric woven from wood by Lenneke Langenhuijsen.

Talking Textiles is curated by Lidewij Edelkoort and Philip Fimmano from Edelkoort Exhibitions. The curators will also be incorporating new objects from the TextielMuseum’s own collection. A textile and design seminar for the public with Lidewij Edelkoort will take place on November 27.
