African Textiles and Adornment:

Selections from the Marcel and Zaira Mis Collection

Los Angeles County Museum of Art

5905 Wilshire Boulevard

Los Angeles

323 857 6010

www.lacma.org

See the brilliant color, bold patterns, and intriguing symbols that characterize the dress of many societies throughout the African continent at the exhibition “African Textiles and Adornment” at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Not only are garments visually compelling, but they are also laden with emblems of power that signify the wealth, status, prestige, or even divinity of the bearer. The body’s seat of intelligence, spirit, and identity is also established by crowning the head with spectacular structures fashioned out of feathers or beads that soar above or surround the head, increasing or expanding a subject’s stature.

Featuring more than 35 dynamic textiles and commanding headdresses, this exhibition presents the profound visual impact of African textiles. Fashioned in a variety of techniques and enhanced with a broad range of natural materials, these extraordinary garments and headpieces sculpt the body into iconic form and serve as aesthetic surrogates for power and esteem
