Kay Sekimachi: Student, Teacher, Artist
Produced in close collaboration with San Francisco native Kay Sekimachi (b. 1926), a pioneer in the post-World War II fiber art movement, this exhibition offers a glimpse into the working processes of one of America's most important weavers. The presentation includes a range of materials totaling over 30 artworks, from small studies to fully realized creations that trace Sekimachi's evolution from student to artist.
This exhibition showcases Katsura (1971), a seminal artwork from this series, and a recent acquisition to the museum's textile arts collection.
