Upcoming Tour of Raoul Dufy Exhibition to Japan

In 2019, an expanded exhibition of Dufy by Design will be returning to Japan to four Japanese museums.

This new exhibition will not only be about Dufy’s enormous contribution to the world of fabric design, but will include paintings and works of art on the theme of music and the world of theatre design.

 

 

In 2010, the British costume designer, Anthony Powell used 25  fabric designs that Dufy had created during his years working with Bianchini-Ferier (1912 – 1928) to create the costumes for the play My Fair Lady that was produced for the Chatelet in Paris and St. Petersburg, Russia..

Five dresses from this production will be included in the exhibition’s tour in Japan

Collaboration with the Bunka Fashion College

During the recent tour of the Dufy by Design exhibition in Japan last year, one of the programs that was developed was a  collaboration with the Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo.  The exhibition was sponsored by Seibu.

For this project, seven fabric deigns created by Raoul Dufy during the period between 1912-1928, when he worked with Bianchini-Ferier in Lyon, were selected and were used by five students to create new fashions that were displayed near the main exhibition.
