Threads of Love: Baby Carriers from China’s Minority Nationalities

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Threads of Love: Baby Carriers from China’s Minority Nationalities, originally on view October 6 - December 23, 2012 at Indiana University, we present a rich folk art tradition of hand-embroidered baby carriers from the minority nationalities of southwestern China. Curated by Judy Stubbs, at Indiana University, along with guest curator Herman Mast, the exhibit highlights the symbolic decorations traditionally used to embellish these otherwise utilitarian, though lovingly made textiles. Auspicious symbols connote good luck, good fortune, happy marriage, and longevity. This selection of baby carriers is drawn from the Miao (known as Hmong in their native language), Zhuang, Yao, and Shui nationalities from the China’s southwestern provinces of Yunnan, Guizhou, and Guangxi, They are on loan from the private collection of Mr. Yu Yawan, of Nanning, China.

June 2: Members Walk-through 1pm to 2pm. Opening Reception 2pm to 4pm. Please RSVP to [email protected]
