A Global View: Recent Acquisitions of Textiles 2012 - 2016

This recently- opened exhibition, at the Art Institute of Chicago, illustrates the breadth of the collections of the department of textiles at the museum under the direction and vision of curator, Dan Walker.  Chicago is very fortunate to be one of the few museums in the US with a strong commitment to the textile arts- historic and contemporary. Highlights include a wonderful contemporary felt by Francisco Toledo, arguably one of the most important contemporary Mexican artists, and pieces by three Chicago artists; Joan Livingstone, Michael Olszewski and Anne Wilson.  This gallery is pleased to represented as well by two 19th century paper short kimono (haori) and a Chinese-influenced batik from Java, Indonesia.
