En tournée
Share :

Created in 2006 by lille3000, Futurotextiles is an exhibition which mix science, technology and art to textile. Objects, applications and works of art are inspired by the wildest dreams to invent tomorrow's hopes.


The exhibition is a discovery journey through the world of textile: science and technology are one side of the exhibition, which is also an artistic, playful and poetic journey with pieces by some of the greatest creators of these past few years.


The exhibition thus conceived was a great success at Tripostal in Lille (France) in 2006, in Istanbul (Turkey) in September 2007, and Futurotextiel 08 during Autumn 2008 in Kortrijk (Belgium). A touring module was then created after the 2nd edition, and it started a world tour to show a wide selection of these concrete visions of tomorrow's textile which change the way we see the world, our surroundings and ourselves.


The exhibition and the touring module have been supported by Designregio Kortrijk, Lille Métropole Communauté urbaine, the Nord-Pas de Calais region, CulturesFrance, Interreg IV and CLUBTEX.


IN 2011


Futurotextiles is preparing a brand new touring exhibition, at the forefront of contemporary creation and of the latest technological innovations.


In 2011, a module giving a foretaste of Futurotextiles 3, will be displayed as part of the Futex convention in Marcq-en-Barœul, to start a tour in ACTE network cities (Association des Collectivités Textiles Européennes).


IN 2012
