The Dowse Art Museum in Lower Hutt is about to open a new textile and fashion exhibition entitled Yield. It will run from 26 March through to 26 June 2011.
Yield is curated by Holly McQuillan, from Massey University Wellington, and Timo Rissanen, from the prestigious Parsons The New School for Design, New York – both share ‘a passion for reducing waste without compromising style’.
The exhibition provides a great opportunity to see the work by a range of international designers who have ‘sought intelligent means to reduce waste, sometimes creating patterns that fit together like a puzzle, or require no cutting at all.’
The designers include: Zandra Rhodes, Yeohlee Teng (Yeohlee), Timo Rissanen, Holly McQuillan, Jennifer Whitty, David Telfer, Julian Roberts, Caroline Priebe (Uluru), Carla Fernandez (Flora2), Tara St James and Natalie Chanin (Alabama Chanin).
