Textiel Museum, Tilburg

– 3 March 2019

Combining a fascination for colour and its effect with the experimental use of textiles, the current exhibition “Colour and Abstraction. Generations in Dialogue” features two generations of artists.



 

Over 50 years of artistic exploration of colour and abstraction demonstrate the size and variety of their possibilities. While the previous generation of artists focused on an experimental approach to creating textiles, the younger generation is interested in colour and abstraction as a subject per se. The exhibition looks at the exploration of new materials, structures, and processes as well as the shift from the formerly two-dimensional medium of textiles to three-dimensional creations. Connections and developments are made clear by the juxtaposition of perspectives from different generations. For example, we can draw connections between the work of Peter Struycken, born in 1939, who used computer-aided techniques for weaving textiles in the 1960s, and Rafaël Rozendaal, born in 1980, in whose work the Internet, colour, and light all play a central role.
