Let's draw together the new Musée des Tissus et des Arts décoratifs of Lyon


The Musée des Tissus et le Musée des Arts Décoratifs (MTMAD) in Lyon,

houses the world's most remarkable collection of fabrics. 

Musée des tissus

Musée des arts décoratifs

With two-and-a-half-million works covering 4,500 years of history and representing a panorama of all civilizations, epochs, styles and techniques, the Museum of Textiles bears exceptional witness to the human textile heritage. As the depository for productions from factories in Lyon, with major items from the time of François I, the museum features textile collections that are an inexhaustible source of inspiration, research and expertise.  

The collections of decorative arts are particularly remarkable. They include some of the richest sets of Italian and French ceramics from the Renaissance, straw marquetry from the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries, items of furniture, paintings, sculptures and other objects and are second only to Paris in importance.  

Project

Threatened with closing at one point, the MTMAD has taken steps toward a magnificent rebirth. With the support of the French government, a strong commitment from the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region and backing by the Lyon Métropole Saint-Etienne Roanne CCI and the textile sector with Unitex, the MTMAD is starting a new chapter in its history. Resolutely turned toward the twenty-first century, the Museum’s ambitious renovation project will highlight the collections at the magical sites on Rue de la Charité, which will be transformed in a way that will offer visitors an unforgettable experience.

This rebirth will include a full restoration of the two private mansions of Villeroy and Lacroix Laval, with their emblematic eighteenth-century style featuring courtyards and gardens, so rarely found in Lyon. The rooms dedicated to preserving and presenting the works will be modernized and extended, while the areas for welcoming visitors will be transformed through the creation of sites for other activities, including a restaurant, an expanded boutique with its own brands of excellence, meeting rooms and an amphitheater.

 

Current Situation

A preliminary Museum association, which includes the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, the Lyon Métropole Saint-Etienne Roanne CCI and Unitex, was organized on February 1, 2018. It should rapidly lead to the creation of a public benefit corporation that will guide the future institution. The Managing Director and the Scientific Director, who are currently being recruited, will be assisted by an honorary committee presided by Stéphane Bern and a scientific committee led by Sophie Makariou, President of the Guimet Museum.

The priority for 2018 is to establish a scientific and cultural museum project that will underlie the architectural project, which could be started early in 2019 in a way that would allow presenting the renovated museum's first major exhibition in September 2020

The Petition

In order to mobilize as many people as possible to prevent the scheduled closing of the MTMAD in 2015, Daniel H. Fruman launched a petition to request the authorities to safeguard this important institution. In just a few months, this petition had the support of 100,000 signatures from all around the world. After barely two years, 135,000 individuals, including a large number of well-known figures, had manifested their wish to defend the MTMAD.

In light of this determined support and to continue serving this worthwhile ambition, those who signed the petition, as well as the general public, are being asked to contribute financially to help bring about the Museum's rebirth and share in an incredible cultural adventure.

In the future, the Museum of Textiles and Museum of Decorative Arts will become a single exhibition site and a reference center for the crafting and restoration of precious textiles. It will be a showcase for cultural manifestations, prestigious events and activities that will promote local textile industry know-how in the heart of Lyon, the silk capital of the world. All this within a captivating historical setting that has been restored and modernized, with an updated presentation and audiovisual and interactive means featuring the latest in digital technology.  



Fund collection goal ?

The collection of funds will help transform Lyon's Museum of Textiles and the Museum of Decorative Arts into a site of inspiration, innovation, exchange, research and training, where fashion, decoration, design, contemporary art, music and gastronomy will blend together. Funding provided by the French government, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, the Lyon Métropole CCI and Unitex will enable the Museum to open its doors in a prestigious, modern setting with newly highlighted architecture, but we also need your support for this rebirth in order to transform it into a heritage and cultural ecosystem, a connected world that is hybrid, alive and open to the greatest number. 

Thanks to your generosity, we will be able to carry out the following projects together:

First level of 50,000 euros:

We will be able to let visitors experience the works in augmented reality (3D) so that they can be examined from all angles. The Museum will be a pioneer in this area.

Second level of 200,000 euros :

We will equip the Museum with multi-user tables featuring wall projections, interactive terminals, didactic terminals for children, and screens that will provide a personalized sensory pathway for each visitor.

Third level of 280,000 euros:

We will produce four films presenting a historical panorama that includes the Silk Road (from China to Lyon), the development of the silk industry (from Francis I to today) and the contributions of canuts (silk workers from Lyon), designers and inventors.

Fourth level of 450,000 euros:

    We will undertake digitizing of:

    1.     167 anthologies containing 6,356 drawings from the MTMAD graphic arts collection, which is currently only partially available; we will also promote these drawings to a broad audience (18 to 24 months of digitizing will be needed to carry out this major operation). 

    157 volumes of CCI and Lyon correspondence registers, which have been deposited with the Departmental Archives; they tell the story of MTMAD collections over more than 100 years

    If we are able to collect more than 450,000 euros:

We will be able to undertake the restoration of works that we will present to you (average unit price for restoring these works is around 10,000 euros). The more support we obtain, the greater the number of art works from our reserves than can be restored (we have 2.5 million items).

Will we also produce a series of videos providing a basic introduction to the various textile techniques, such as those used for fabrics (weaves), tapestries, rugs, embroidery, lace and trimmings, with illustrations of works that stem exclusively from the MTMAD (50,000 euro budget).
