This exhibition is devoted exclusively to fabric in all its forms: woven, sewn, stretched, cut, torn, misappropriated, embroidered, painted, shaped, worn etc. Many works are taken from the Daniel Cordier collection, donated to the Musée National d'art moderne - Centre Georges Pompidou and deposited at les Abattoirs. These creations from all continents are displayed alongside works by contemporary artists.
