Blow-Up: Graphic Abstraction in 1960s Design

September 18, 2015, 10:00 am TO 5:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)
| Saint Louis Art Museum | Free

This exhibit will explore the emergence of large-scale abstract pattern and form in textiles, fashion, and furnishings of the 1960s, with an emphasis on Finland and Italy as centers of innovation. Referencing Italian filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1966 fashion-steeped thriller of the same title, the exhibition features a selection of outsized, graphic objects in saturated colors that capture the youthful vitality that came to characterize the decade.
