The 7th edition of Le Temps des collections (“Collections’ time”) is being held in Rouen. For this occasion, fashion is honoured as part of 6 exhibitions to be discovered until May 19, 2019 in the metropolitan museums.
The programme launched in 2012 by the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Rouen is one of the first initiatives in France to put the collections back at the heart of museum programming. Each time, the aim is to reveal the richness and variety of public collections, to reveal the other side of the coin, the mystery of the reserves and to encourage rediscoveries by opening the museums to new perspectives…
Many guests have followed one another, curators, historians, artists, personalities from the world of culture, or more recently simple amateurs with the Chamber of Visitors…
This seventh edition will offer six exhibitions on the theme of fashion and textiles. Fabrics, costumes, dresses, jewellery and many other exceptional creations are highlighted. These exhibitions present the specific clothing characteristics of emblematic periods in history. From antiquity to the contemporary era, many objects that have never been presented are to be discovered!
