Bingata! Only in Okinawa

Exhibition Website

Nov 5 2016 - Jan 30 2017

Okinawa, Japan’s southernmost prefecture, was an independent kingdom until 1879, with its own language, culture, and distinctive textile traditions. This special showing of textile treasures from Okinawan museum collections will feature brightly colored bingata—traditional resist-dyed fabrics—and contemporary works by Okinawan artists and fashion designers.
