Intimacy & Sustainable Colour 15.2.2022, 11:00 - 12:00

28 January 2022

The exhibition Intimacy situates at the intersection of novel politicization and digital disruption of fashion. It updates our understanding of Finnish clothing and accessory design into the 2020s, exploring the intimate relationship between the body and the clothes we wear and introducing visitors to the creative design process, from initial sketches to the finished products. The exhibition also highlights the impact of digitalization and datafication on the work of the designer as well as the mechanisms through which fashion is manufactured, distributed and consumed. The exhibition is curated by Professor Annamari Vänskä and researchers from her research group, post-doctoral researcher Jenni Hokka and PhD-researcher Natalia Särmäkari from Aalto University. 

Responsible and ecological production and the use of textiles are more relevant than ever before. The Sustainable Colour exhibition focuses on one of the essential aspects of textile manufacturing – dyeing. The traditions of dyeing date back a long way from human history but needs and customs have changed over the centuries. Sustainable Colour is an exhibition produced by the Craft Museum of Finland. The partners are the BioColour research project led by the University of Helsinki, and the Finnish Dyers’ Guild. Exhibition architecture by Elina and Klaus Aalto.
