Exhibitions

MoMu organises continually changing theme exhibitions about a designer of fashion-related theme in an exhibition space specifically adapted to each exhibition. Each exhibition is created around a total narrative in which not only articles of clothing are displayed, but a complete context is presented. For example, sources of inspiration for a designer, connections with other art disciplines, multimedia collaborations, etc. MoMu works with designers and their team to develop the exhibition concept and the design of the exhibition. MoMu's exhibitions have also travelled to London, Tokyo, Munich, Istanbul, Enschede and Melbourne. Below an overview of past, present and future exhibitions.
