RIK WOUTERS EXHIBITION MOMU ANTWERP

Christian Wijnants collaborated with the Antwerp fashion museum MoMu for its exhibition ‘Rik Wouters & The Private Utopia’ which took place from 17 September 2016 until 26 February 2017. The paintings of Belgian artist Rik Wouters (1882-1916) were set against clothing pieces of several Belgian designers who captured the same particular atmosphere. The striped silhouettes from the SPRING 2015 collection were featured in the exposition. Christian Wijnants designed a DIY dress inspired by the painting ‘Red Curtains’ (1913) and the way in which Wouters depicted his wife Nel in a graphic red and white dress, which was sold exclusively for the exhibition.
