The Power Station of Art presents, together with theMusée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, Decorum, an exhibition highlighting textiles and showcasing more than a hundred carpets and tapestries from Europe, America, Africa and Asia from the 6th century to the present day.
Carpets and tapestries are closely interwoven with the Western living experience and history. From the Middle Ages up until the 18th century was a golden age for European tapestries. By the 19th century, carpets lost their former lofty status to the point of becoming relics of history, seen as minor in all senses (crafty, feminine, primitive).
