Showing Off: Identity and Display in Asian Costume
Fashion is a form of language. What we wear broadcasts critical information about us and serves as a visible indicator of social rank, profession, ethnicity, or status. This exhibition of Asian textiles and other works from the Cantor’s collection demonstrates how costume and objects of personal adornment functioned as a method of identification and display from the late 18th century to today. Ranging from Qing court costumes to Indonesian textiles, the selection on view spotlights visual symbols while showcasing rarely displayed garments.
Ongoing every day from October 14, 2015 through May 23, 2016.
11:00 am – 5:00 pm
Open Wed-Mon 11am - 5pm, Thursdays until 8pm; admission is free. CLOSED TUESDAY.
