Inside Cincinnati Art Museum’s ‘The Fabric of India’ Exhibition


Like the process of creating textiles itself, Cincinnati Art Museum’s The Fabric of India exhibition weaves intricate threads that tell the story of a country steeped in rich history, culture and tradition. And perhaps India’s tale is best recounted through the art of creating cloth, a symbol not only of the past, but also of modern possibilities.

In part, it was that narrative underscoring the sheer beauty of many Indian fabrics that inspired Cynthia Amnéus — the museum’s curator of fashion arts and textiles — to bring the exhibit, originally organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, to Cincinnati.
