Marimekko: Design Icon 1951 to 2018
Presented by Bendigo Art Gallery

Bendigo Art Gallery

Established during the golden age of post-war modernism, Marimekko is the Finnish textile and fashion company that achieved international fame in the 1960s and 70s with its bold screen prints and pop-art style graphics.

This exhibition traces Marimekko’s meteoric rise from the 1950s to the present through its iconic fabric patterns and unconventional ready-to-wear outfits. With more than 60 outfits, swathes of original fabrics, homewares, sketches and other archival materials, the exhibition focuses on the work of the talented individuals who defined this Finnish textile practice and created its internationally recognisable designs.
