Cloth as Land: Hmong Indigeneity

March 3 - June 16

While the Cloth as Land exhibition emphasizes contemporary HMong artists, there’s an entire section dedicated to traditional textiles made by HMong artisans from around the U.S. and Southeast Asia dating back to the 1930s. Over 30 traditional textiles on display have been digitally curated to view also. A symposium bringing together HMong artists, artisans, leaders, and community members to engage with a variety of today’s HMong art practices is taking place April 6 – 7, 2024 and can be accessed here.
