MMAM Exhibition: Cloth as Community: Hmong Textiles in America
May 20 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until May 22, 2022
Hmong flower cloth (or paj ntaub) is one of the world’s great textile traditions and an excellent example of cloth as community. The works illustrate the profound relevance of textiles as infrastructure in the Hmong culture, an art form that shifted as it adapted to fit new realities. The exhibition features 28 textiles—flower cloths and embroidered story clothes—by those in the Hmong community. The MMAM is closed on Mondays.
