St. Louis Art Museum
June 15 – November 25
Balance and Opposition in Ancient Peruvian Textiles presents works from the Museum’s impressive collection of Andean textiles that illustrate this quest for balance through imagery, technique, and function. This collection of textiles, including loaned works from the University of Missouri Museum of Art and Archaeology, have never been on view together. Spanning nearly 2,000 years and drawn from across Peru’s diverse cultures and terrains, these works demonstrate larger ideas about the relationship between life and death, gendered dress, and the textile medium itself.
