Exhibition

Tekunikku: The Art of Japanese Textile Making, Sept. 24-Dec. 9

An exploration of textile design and creation, “Tekunikku: The Art of Japanese Textile Making, Featuring Textiles from the Catherine Cerny Collection” is a vibrant installation which opens at the UC Davis Design Museum on Sept. 24. The exhibition runs through Dec. 9.

This exhibition focuses on the extensive Japanese textile collection of Catherine Cerny spanning over 40 years of her travels, cultural exploration and technical study. The exhibition will show a rich tradition of design-making and exemplify unique techniques that continue to inform contemporary textile/fashion design and education. The exhibition design will evoke the vibrancy and bustle of a traditional Japanese market where many of the objects were originally purchased.

“Japanese textiles demonstrate a rich tradition of design making, and exemplify unique techniques that continue to inform contemporary textile/fashion design and education,” said exhibition curator Alicia Decker. “’Tekunikku’ focuses on the extensive Japanese textile collection of Catherine Cerny. Cerny’s collection spans over 40 years of first hand cultural exploration and technical study.” 

The Design Museum, part of the College of Letters and Science, is in Cruess Hall, Room 124. It is free and open weekdays noon to 4 p.m. and Sundays 2 to 4 p.m.
