Talking Textiles exhibition

Trend forecasting and design guru, Lidewij Edelkoort, will be promoting young textile design talent from the UK and Europe at her Talking Textiles exhibition at the Salone Satellite 2011 Milan Furniture Fair which will be celebrating its 50th anniversary and will be expecting around 300,000 visitors from 12th to 17th April.

‎”Exhibition curator Li said, “It is so important to take notice again of contemporary textile designers who are becoming an endangered species. With the expenditure at colleges and art schools rising, the textile ateliers are the first to be downsized or removed.”

A selection of young graduate designers will be showcased as part of Edelkoort’s ongoing initiative to promote textile design education, bringing the freshest European design talent to public attention. Supporting the graduate designers exhibiting and Li’s quest to save the endangered discipline of textile design are Skillset, British Fashion Council, UKFT and Texprint.

The designs on show will include textiles, rugs, curtains, lighting, accessories and upholstered furniture, but also multimedia installations, digital animations and film projections.”

Walls Are Talking The University of Manchester

6 February – 3 May 2010

The first major UK exhibition of artists’ wallpapers with work by over 30 artists including Andy Warhol, Sarah Lucas and Damien Hirst. Kitsch ideas of home decoration are turned upside down as artists subvert the stereotypes of wallpaper to hit home messages about warfare, racism, cultural conflicts and gender.The exhibition is grouped around themes: subversion, commodification, imprisonment and sexuality. In Sonia Boyce’s work Clapping, a feeling of claustrophobia and menace is strengthened by the repeated design of the black and white hand print. Zineb Sedira uses wallpaper patterns to illustrate social inequalities and gender difference from her French-Algerian Islamic perspective. Thomas Demand, one of the foremost conceptual artists working today, covers the entire South Gallery in his Ivy wallpaper – intricate pieces of paper cut out and photographed make up a lifelike work of imprisoning beauty. In stark contrast to this are popular commercial papers that reinforce cultural and gender stereotypes; from Barbie or the Spice Girls to the use of male symbols such as beer cans, football teams or idealised female bodies.
