Social Fabric: African Textiles Today

Bringing together Kenyan and Tanzanian kanga and South African shweshwe from the British Museum’s collection, the exhibition reveals how these fabrics express the social, political, religious, emotional and sexual concerns of the people who wear them. It will also showcase contemporary art and fashion inspired by these textile traditions.
