African Textiles at the Cooper Hewitt Museum

Architect David Adjaye mines the museum’s permanent collection for the 12th exhibition in the ongoing Selects series. 

On view in the Marks Gallery, the exhibition features 14 West and Central African textiles from the museum’s textile holdings, including an Asante kente cloth from Ghana, a bògòloanfini mud cloth from Mali, a Dyula ikat wrapper from Ivory Coast and a Yoruba indigo dyed wrapper from Nigeria.
