Weaving Stories

December 17, 2021 - December 31, 2022

Weaving Stories brings together about forty-five outstanding examples of textiles from dozens of communities in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Malaysia, most dating to the 19th and 20th centuries. Learn how fabrics were woven into the daily lives of the peoples of Southeast Asia, telling stories of identity, faith, status, and women as artistic innovators. Archival photographs and multimedia displays illustrate how these textiles were made and used.
