Woven: Connections and Meanings

October 25, 2019 - April 19, 2020

Event Navigation

The National Museum of Mexican Art is pleased to present Woven: Connections and Meanings. Join them on Friday, October 25th from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm for a celebratory opening reception!
Woven: Connections and Meanings includes the work of five contemporary Mexican and Mexican American women artists who have undertaken an age-old utilitarian tradition, sacred yet in many occasions undervalued. These artists now weave fresh narratives that address the US-Mexico border, immigration, identity, environment, materiality and resistance. Tanya Aguiñiga, Florencia Guillén, Consuelo Jimenez Underwood, Marta Palau and Georgina Valverde are compelling and dynamic voices that connect the practice of textile art with concepts of social justice and activism.
