Transnational Ikat: An Asian Textile on the Move
Ikat is a ‘textile on the move’ today: moving across borders from Southeast Asia to other parts of the world, moving from ritual use to American fashion wear and other marketplace forms. This exhibition of ikat cloths from Indonesia and Malaysia displays over 40 of these remarkable textiles, both in their deeply ceremonial forms and in their vibrantly commercialized versions. The exhibition focuses on ikats from eastern Indonesia, Sumatra, Sulawesi, and Malaysia’s Sarawak.
