DescriptionArgentina, Chile, Ecuador, Guatemala, Indonesia, and Algeria are just a few of the nations represented in the sixteen-work textile exhibition Resisting Color: Textiles Tied and Dyed. Half of the pieces in the exhibition are recent additions to the Museum's collections and will be shown here for the first time. Ranging in date from the late 19th to mid-20th century, these textiles represent two dyeing techniques that were used to achieve pattern. Most were used for clothing, while some served ceremonial functions. A selection of books on textiles and dyeing will be available in the exhibition room for further research. Resisting Color: Textiles Tied and Dyed is organized by the Dallas Museum of Art.
