FuturLiberty: Liberty Fabrics and the Avant-Garde
A unique exploration of the close relationship between art and design, explored through the historic and contemporary fabric designs of Liberty, where avant-garde art has influenced the colourful, geometric collections for more than half a century. Liberty is renowned internationally for its fabrics, especially its floral patterns, but it also has a long history of developing bold, geometric designs. Many of these have been inspired by early 20th-century avant-garde art, notably by the Italian Futurists - by artists such as Giacomo Balla and Umberto Boccioni - and their English contemporaries the Vorticists, including Christopher Nevinson and Edward Wadsworth.
