united colors of benetton exhibits a colorful history at the triennale

united colors of benetton presented an immersive exhibition at the triennale during milan fashion week. guided by garments from the new spring-summer collection as well as works curated by fabrica, benetton’s arts and research centre, the exhibit explored an integral part of the italian clothing brand’s dna – colour of course.

titled ‘I see colors everywhere’, the exhibit was divided into eight sections. each was dedicated to a color which was explored and celebrated through an array of different mediums – from videos and posters to performances and interactive installations – created over more than two decades.

a broad spectrum of united colors of benetton‘s heritage was presented, reinforcing design, art and society into a dialogue with one another. as well as referencing the brand’s bold designs on the runway, a reminder of their controversial campaigns as well as their dedication to art echoed throughout.

moving through 50 works sourced from long term collaborators as well as fabrica themselves, the show featured digital art installations and intricate sculptures aswell as a project on the ‘ginger gene’ and a series of sound installations. the exhibition also came with an accompanying publication exploring a range of colours individually, reminding us of how ubiquitous the concept of colour really is.
