Accounting for Taste: On the Collecting of Textiles from Japan
From firefighters’ ceremonial robes and rural workwear, to colorful, delicately patterned cotton kimonos, collector Thomas Murray introduces us to the world-class collection of Japanese textiles he assembled over almost 40 years. A researcher, Asian and tribal art dealer, and HALI magazine contributing editor, Murray will explore the range and artistry of Japan’s tradition of fiber arts, as well as their original usage.
