A more whim­si­cal de­sign The masters of Cu­bism, Fau­vism, Con­struc­tivism, Ab­strac­tion, Ab­str Sur­re­al­ism, and Pop Art have been suc­cess­fully suc­cessf brought to­gether in fab­ric form. ‘Artist Tex­tiles: Pi­casso Pic to Warhol’ at the Fash­ion and Tex­tile Mu­seum in Lon­don Lon is a stun­ning ex­hi­bi­tion of works of art turned di into tex­tile, il mak­ing art more ac­ces­si­ble. Mes­meris­ing silk scarves by Sal­vador Dalí for Wes­ley Simp­son, funky prints by Pablo Pi­casso on beau­ti­ful dresses, along with Joan Miró frocks and many more bril­liant col­lab­o­ra­tions of art and fab­ric. A must-see for art lovers and tex­tile en­thu­si­asts, ‘Artist Tex­tiles’ shows how or­di­nary people were once able to en­gage with mod­ern art in a per­sonal and in­ti­mate way through their cloth­ing and home fur­nish­ings. Case in point: Fau­vist pain­ter Raoul Dufy, one of the first from his era to suc­cess­fully pro­duce tex­tile de­signs, pav­ing the way for other artists to par­take in the grow­ing trend. Un­til May 17 at the Fash­ion and Tex­tile Mu­seum, 83 Ber­mond­sey St, Lon­don. Tel: +44 20 7407 8664. www.ftm­lon­don.org
