Mu­seum of In­ter­na­tional Folk Art, 706 Camino Lejo, 505-476-1200 From Botswana to Bor­neo to In­dia to the Amer­i­cas, beads are among the most uni­ver­sal medi­ums used for cul­tural ex­pres­sion. The ex­hi­bi­tion Bead­work Adorns the World ex­plores the myr­iad ob­jects — whether used for util­i­tar­ian or cer­e­mo­nial pur­poses — that are made with beads. The show in­cludes his­toric ex­am­ples as well as con­tem­po­rary forms of bead­work, many of which are used in con­junc­tion with oc­ca­sions such as births, deaths, mar­riages, and the pas­sage from ado­les­cence to adult­hood. Beads are also used to des­ig­nate sta­tus, power, and iden­tity. The show con­tin­ues through Feb. 3, 2019.
