Belgium is Design is pleased to present ‘Textiles Revealed’, introducing the work of 11 contemporary Belgian textile designers to an American audience. Aa part of the fourth annual New York Textile Month, the exhibition is curated by Lidewij Edelkoort and Philip Fimmano.

Education, material knowledge, research, innovation, technology and production methods, not to mention ecological, ethical and social awareness, are all reflected in TEXTILES REVEALED. The works on show range from imposing installations and sustainable furniture to instinctive wallhangings and textural rugs.

As Edelkoort explains

The exhibition upends preconceived notions of traditional Belgian textiles – often limited to the country’s centuries-old linen heritage – instead unraveling an exciting thread among designers from the region. Tufting, felting, digital jacquards and coiling are just some of the techniques employed by a new generation redefining the boundaries of textile creativity.

New York Textile Month represents the ideal showcase for such creativity. From unique collectible pieces to commissioned interior works, textiles are very much a part of contemporary Belgian design.

Although regularly exhibiting at leading design events in Europe, TEXTILES REVEALED is Belgium is Design’s first venture in the United States and the first time it has focused exclusively on textiles. The event offers great opportunities for the selected artists and designers to connect with the America’s dynamic galleries, collectors, interior architects and designers.
