While in Toronto last week, I was delighted to be able to visit The Textile Museum. They had two amazing exhibits: Artist Textiles: Picasso to Warhol, and Frida Kahlo, Through the Lens of Nickolas Muray with traditional Mexican costume from the Textile Museum.
Sadly... no photos of the Artist Textiles exhibit, which was fantastic!!! But there is a book. It was amazing to see how artists from the 40's and beyond took their paintings to the cloth.
