Details:This exhibition features masterpieces of fiber arts created by Guatemalan Maya artists over a hundred years till modern days. The artworks present some of the finest examples of Guatemalan weaving and embroidery while showcasing various techniques and materials employed in the creative process. They also illustrate how changes in designs and the adoption of new materials have become a part of the Mayan living traditions and have helped maintain their vitality over time. The displays of “old” and “new” forms of Guatemalan weavings enable the viewers to make comparisons and engage in a deeper conversation about preservation and transformation of traditions, the adaptation of folk arts to the contemporary way of life, and about continuation and change of everyone’s “own” cultural heritage in the multi-cultural context of the American society. The exhibition story reveals the complex character of the Mayan garments and other woven and embroidered pieces. The weaving patterns are interpreted in the context of a broad spectrum of regional, social, ritual, and aesthetic meanings.
