Woven, Embroidered and Stitched in Tradition:
Women’s Textile Labour in 20th Century Asia
February 8–May 24
Legacy Maltwood Gallery, UVic campus
This exhibition showcases a dazzling array of luxury textiles, exquisitely crafted in China, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, and Bangladesh. They shed light on women’s roles as makers, consumers, and connoisseurs between the late 19th century to today, an era of monumental shifts in the production, accessibility, and commodification of garments.
