Yohji Yamamoto at Holon
The exhibition of Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto at the Design Museum Holon coincides with the 60th anniversary of the Japan-Israel relationship and the 40th anniversary of Yamamoto’s company, Y’s. It curates over 80 signature women and menswear silhouettes of the avant-gardist, exploring discussions between people, places, clothings and design. The expressive installation, designed by Masao Nihei, will cleverly bring together all the various indoor and outdoor spaces of the museum – designed by Ron Arad. The flow of objects through the private and public arenas should create a continuous stream of inspiration, inviting visitors to experience a journey of emotions, memories and design. Until October 20, 2012.
Yohji Yamamoto: „After exhibiting in London, Florence and Paris, it is a natural flow for me to organise an exhibition in Israel this time – a country very rich in culture. In an era where we only receive prepared information, as a thinker, I want to see Israel with my own eyes and feel it through my skin to get to know it well. Now I will be able to experience it live“.
