Power of Pattern: Central Asian Ikats Exhibition at LACMA


The Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art will be displaying Central Asian ikat robes and panels, all from the David and Elizabeth Reisbord Collection. Over 60 examples of these textiles examine each region’s textile designers, dyers, and weavers. These artisans experimented with motifs in daily life, distilling shapes in nature into compositions using ikat techniques.

Opening on February 3, Power of Pattern will be on view through July 28, 2019. More information and LACMA viewing hours can be found here.
