Yohji Yamamoto at Design Museum Holon
July 05 – October 20, 2012

In an Israeli first, Design Museum Holon is proud to announce an exhibition by visionary designer Yohji Yamamoto. Maestro of avant-garde fashion, Yohji Yamamoto remains one of the world’s most influential and enigmatic designers and over the last forty years has made a vital contribution to fashion, challenging traditional norms of clothing with his style. The exhibition at Design Museum Holon is particularly meaningful as it coincides with the 60th anniversary of the Japan-Israel relationship and the 40th anniversary of Yamamoto’s company, Y’s. Yohji Yamamoto says: “After exhibiting in London, Florence and Paris, it is a natural flow for me to organise an exhibition in Israel this time – a country very rich in culture. In an era where we only receive prepared information, as a thinker, I want to see Israel with my own eyes and feel it through my skin to get to know it well. Now I will be able to experience it live”.

The Upper Gallery

Curated by Galit Gaon, Design Museum Holon’s Chief Curator, the exposition will challenge and re-conceptualise the way in which conventional fashion exhibitions are presented. A series of site specific installations will be designed which embrace and respond to Ron Arad’s iconic building. The exhibition will curate over 80 Yohji Yamamoto’s signature women and menswear silhouettes, exploring discussions between people, places, clothing and design. The expressive installation, designed by Masao Nihei, will cleverly bring together all the various indoor and outdoor spaces of the museum, including the two major galleries, lab space, garden and public areas. The flow of objects through the private and public arenas will create a continuous stream of inspiration, inviting visitors to experience a journey of emotions, memories and design.

The Lower Gallery

The lower gallery will recreate the vibrancy and heightened feeling of the world’s major metropolitan areas while the upper gallery will invite visitors to interact with an abstract installation. Galit Gaon, Design Museum Holon’s Chief Curator, comments, “We are honoured to partner with Yohji Yamamoto, one of the most iconic fashion figures of our time. The introduction of Yamamotos’ innovative aesthetic, precision and creativity will mark a significant milestone in the Museum’s life”.
