    Opening reception for the exhibition Transnational Ikat: An Asian Textile on the Move. Ikat is a ‘textile on the move’ today: moving across borders from Southeast Asia to other parts of the world, moving from ritual use to American fashion wear and other marketplace forms, moving from Asian villages to international museums and art collecting circuits. This exhibition of ikat cloths from Indonesia and Malaysia displays over 40 of these remarkable textiles, both in their deeply ceremonial forms and in their vibrantly commercialized versions. The exhibition focuses on ikats from eastern Indonesia, Sumatra, Sulawesi, and Malaysia’s Sarawak.
     

    The Cantor Art Gallery gratefully acknowledges funding support for Transnational Ikat from the Holy Cross Sociology & Anthropology Department and Asian Studies Program.
