Speaker: Allie Arnell, Docent, The San Diego Museum of Art
For much of its history, Okinawa, Japan was known as the Ryûkyû Islands. These islands had an independent political and artistic culture from Japan. This included fine textiles of a unique nature. The most famous of these was Bingata, a textile decorated through a labor-intensive stenciling process. We will explore the textiles of these islands as well as their culture and history.
