Bingata! Only in Okinawa
Okinawa, Japan’s southernmost prefecture, was an independent kingdom until 1879, with its own language, culture, and distinctive textile traditions. This special showing of textile treasures from Okinawan museum collections will feature brightly coloredbingata—traditional resist-dyed fabrics—and contemporary works by Okinawan artists and fashion designers. Organized in partnership with the Okinawa Prefectural Government. Major grant support for this exhibition is provided by the Coby Foundation, Ltd., and the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation.
