Gemeente Museum Helmond

Helmond, 2016


In September 2016 the exhibition 'Vlisco 1:1 Un à Un' opened its doors at the Gemeente Museum Helmond. The exhibition celebrated the 170th anniversary of the textile manufacturer Vlisco.


'Vlisco 1:1 Un à Un' shows classic textile patterns, re-interpretations and new designs. The exhibition zoomed in on four specific aspects: the company's history, production processes, design processes and use of the fabrics in fashion and art. This presentation, developed especially for Vlisco's 170th anniversary, emphasised on the captivating visual qualities of the fabrics and on their powerful symbolism.
