Designlines - - Hot Dates -

Jul 12-Jan 21 Utilitarian indigo-dyed cot­ton, lux­u­ri­ous silk ki­monos and other stylish ar­ti­facts tell the story of life in Ja­pan dur­ing the 19th and 20th cen­turies. Many of the more than 50 tex­tiles on dis­play are con­structed us­ing an­cient weav­ing, tint­ing and em­broi­dery tech­niques. These pieces are joined by con­tem­po­rary tex­tiles by Ja­panese-cana­di­ans Hiroko Karuno and Keiko Shin­tani, who con­tinue to em­ploy these same ar­ti­sanal prac­tices in their own work. $15.
