Kata-Gami

On View: 
Tuesday, April 10, 1979 to Sunday, May 20, 1979

Nineteenth-century Japanese stencils (kata-gami) used for dyeing textiles provide invaluable insights into the geometric forms, costumes, and figures used at that time—although the original fabrics are gone, the stencils remain! This exhibition also features stencil-dyed fabrics and photographs to help illustrate this textile printing process.
