Museo Textil De Oaxaca Co-Design Across Culture

September 2021 – January 2022

Sharing traditions, finding a common language in the art of creating textiles, ten teams of traditional textile artisans in Oaxaca paired with ten artisan designers from Kutch. Sharing images of their homes and their work, and concepts of their imaginations each group developed a theme, and then designed and created a collection that expressed it. The exhibition displays extraordinary work that reflects cross-cultural inspirations for innovations within traditions.
