Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Guatemala, Indonesia, and Algeria are just a few of the nations represented in the sixteen-work textile exhibition Resisting Color: Textiles Tied and Dyed. Half of the pieces in the exhibition are recent additions to the Museum's collections and will be shown here for the first time. Ranging in date from the late 19th to mid-20th century, these textiles represent two dyeing techniques that were used to achieve pattern. Most were used for clothing, while some served ceremonial functions. A selection of books on textiles and dyeing will be available in the exhibition room for further research. Resisting Color: Textiles Tied and Dyed is organized by the Dallas Museum of Art.
Exhibition Tour: Sunday, April 27, 3:00 p.m. Join Carol Robbins, The Ellen and Harry S. Parker III Curator of the Arts of the Americas and the Pacific, for an exhibition tour of Resisting Color: Textiles Tied and Dyed.
The Dallas Museum of Art is supported, in part, by the generosity of DMA Members and donors, the citizens of Dallas through the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, and the Texas Commission on the Arts.
