Hmong flower cloth (or paj ntaub) is one of the world’s great textile traditions and an excellent example of cloth as community. Despite its deep roots in Hmong culture, this complex art was not widely known outside Asia until after the Vietnam War, when Hmong refugees arrived in the United States. 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 cloths—by those in the Hmong community.

Featuring the work of 43 Latin American artists and 26 artists from the United States, Pan American Modernism explores the rich visual dialogue that exists between objects produced by artists working in 13 countries in North, South, and Central America during the 60-year period between 1919 and 1979.

China Marks

China Marks explores the tangled nature of social relationships and human imperfections through a singular irreverent visual iconography. Describing her work as “process-directed, constructed fabric drawings,” Marks draws with thread. Using commercially available printed fabric, an industrial zigzag sewing machine, a computerized embroidery machine, and a collagist strategy, Marks creates complex narratives that “reflect the world we live in all its glory, horror, and absurdity…”
