This exhibition is a tribute to the century-old handmade designs and patterns on textiles that originated in Indonesia and were copied and industrialized by Europeans and exported to Africa. “Wandering Spirit: African Wax Prints” traces the developmental pathway of the African wax print and tells how these fabrics reflect the stories, dreams, and personalities of the people who wear them.
The exhibition is curated by Dr. Gifty Benson and organized by ExhibitsUSA/Mid-America Arts Alliance, Kansas City, Missouri.
It will be on display at UA-PTC July 12 – October 5, 2019.
Gallery hours are: Monday – Thursday, 10:00am to 6:00pm; Friday, 10:00am to 5:00pm; Saturday, 10:00am to 2:00pm.
