Established during the golden age of post-war Modernism, Marimekko is the Finnish textile and fashion company that achieved international fame in the 1960s and 1970s with its bold screen prints and Pop Art-style graphics.
A large-scale exhibition highlighting the history and relevance of the Marimekko brand will open at Bendigo Art Gallery in March 2018 and is an Australian exclusive.
This exhibition traces the brand’s meteoric rise from the 1950s to the present, and explores the dualities that define its aesthetic. Iconic fabric patterns and unconventional ready-to-wear outfits brought colour and informality to an otherwise self-conscious fashion world.
We are now taking accommodation bookings for this exciting new exhibition for those wanting to stay a little longer in Bendigo.
