Celebrating the visual languages of PEOPLE, COMMUNITY, CULTURE, and ENVIRONMENT through the global practice of resist-dye traditions and innovations, keeping in mind authenticity, reciprocity, and networking.
WSN President Yoshiko I. Wada is currently in Sweden on the invitation of iapsis (the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s International Program). Today, we share a photo round-up of her travel so far…
In Stockholm, Yoshiko conducted a workshop and gave a lecture at The Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities and later visited the Museum of Ethnography to look at their textile collections. At the Museum of World Culture in Gothenburg, Yoshiko talked about resist-dyed textiles from across the world.
Yoshiko also met with The Swedish Shibori Society (Svenska Shiborisällskapet) to understand their work and discuss common interests.
Yesterday, she participated in a group discussion at the opening of Itajime Interpreted exhibition at the Fiberspace Gallery. The exhibition is curated by textile designer Asa Parson. Read about the discussion here.
Our thanks to all the wonderful folks in Sweden – artists, schools, workshop assistants, museum partners, volunteers, iapsis and the Swedish Shibori Society – who have made this exchange possible!
