EXHIBITION OPEN HOUSE | NOVEMBER 20th…The Mexican Cultural Institute

Weaving Diversity. Textiles from Oaxaca

On November 20 the Mexican Cultural Institute will open its gallery spaces to an extraordinary exhibition of textiles from the Textile Museum of Oaxaca. Representing four important collections, the elaborate pieces on display  will showcase  historical indigenous attire worn throughout the late 19th and 20th centuries, as well as creations that feature unique weaving techniques and original textures. This exhibition is the result of decades of travel, discovery and collecting on the part of ardent proponents of the Mexican textile and popular art tradition.
