Gold Needles: Embroidery Arts from Korea

  • Date Sunday, March 08, 2020 - Sunday, July 26, 2020

Arlene M. and Arthur S. Holden Textile Gallery (234)
Co-organized with the Seoul Museum of Craft Art, this exhibition celebrates anonymous women artists who triumphed over the conventions of the patriarchal Joseon society. Stunning examples of embroidery and patchwork reveal how this art form functioned as a tool of empowerment to overcome social and cultural constraints.
