Soft? Tactile Dialogues
September 28, 2018 – February 24, 2019

Momu Antwerp Museum

Soft? Tactile Dialogues” is about the freedom with which artists move between various media, about unexpected textile applications, about tactility and aversion, and about the textures and the skin of sculptures. This exhibition will mark the first time that MoMu takes its focus away from fashion. It will present work from its own collection by Belgian textile artists from the 1970s and ’80s in an inspiring dialogue with contemporary artists who express themselves freely in textiles. The Maurice Verbaet Center’s 1960s architecture and its monumental stairwell form an impressive backdrop for the exhibition.

CARALARGA

One of the main reasons and inspiration of CARALARGA, founded in 2014, was entering the world of Mexican textiles. It is at the – old factory of yarn and textiles – “El Hercules” in Querétaro, Mexico, where the concern for creating pieces made of starched 100% raw cotton thread, arose in our minds. Qualities such as texture, color and smell of the thread, motivated a line made, not necessarily of metals, but of natural fibers. CARALARGA refers to Mexican culture and its prehispanic origins.
