Over sixty Central Asian ikat robes and wall hangings will be exhibited at The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in ‘Power of Pattern: Central Asian Ikats from the David and Elizabeth Reisbord Collection’, opening 3 February through to 28 July 2019. Curated by Clarissa M. Esguerra, Associate Curator of Costume and Textiles, the textiles on show will be organised by motif, and the exhibition examines how the region’s designers, dyers and weavers used improvisation and abstraction to create textiles unique to Central Asia.
