Six Yards

"Six Yards: Guaranteed Dutch Design" is an exhibit that follows the evolution of African wax print from its roots in Indonesia through to its modern day use in fashion and art. The exhibit includes work from fashion designers such as Dries Van Noten and Marga Weimans, as well as artists like Yinka Shonibare, that have used wax prints in their work. The museum shop will also have a selection of textiles from notable wax print manufacturer, Vlisco, for sale for the duration of the exhibit. "Six Yards" is currently at the Museum voor Moderne Kunst Arnhem in Arnhem, Netherlands until May 7, 2012.
