February 13-July 30, 2024 Resist: Tie Dye Practices from Around the World
Resist dyeing is a magical process. Patterns and images are revealed after a complex series of folds, ties, binds, and dyes. Scholars believe that these practices may have developed independently in cultures across the world. Join the Avenir Museum as we tie together diverse practices of tie dye from Japan, Indonesia, India, Uzbekistan, Nigeria, Guatemala, and Peru, amongst others.
