Exhibition on Natural Resources at Textile Museum, Canada

Oct '12
Exhibition on Natural Resources: Textiles and Material Translation will take place at Textile Museum of Canada (TMC) from October 17, 2012 to January 6, 2013. Drawing from the TMC’s rich international collection, Natural Resources explores artifacts from a variety of global sites and their translation into environmental materials through their structure, technology, function and surface design. 
 
While today's “smart” fabrics are frequently associated with architectural design, textiles as sustainable resources and architectural solutions have a long history going back to Palaeolithic times, representing an archetypal form of “green” material that has endured to the present day. 
 
The exhibition explores the interrelationships among the complex properties of materials and their construction, function and design, and investigates new innovations where invented forms reference traditional techniques and technologies.
 
The Textile Museum of Canada is one of Toronto's most engaging visual arts organizations.  With more than 12,000 objects from more than 200 countries and regions, the TMC's permanent collection celebrates cultural diversity and includes traditional fabrics, garments, carpets and related artifacts such as beadwork and basketry.
