The Fabric of Modernity

Matisse, Picasso, Miró ... and French Tapestries

6 December 20198 March 2020

For the first time in Germany, the Kunsthalle München is presenting tapestries that were produced in the Gobelins Manufactory in Paris from designs created by the most prestigious artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, including Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Le Corbusier, Joan Miró and Louise Bourgeois. With innumerable large-scale wall hangings that span the period from the end of World War I to the present day, the exhibition reveals just how surprisingly modern the traditional craft of tapestry weaving truly is.
