Urban textiles and costumes

This exhibition is the first of its kind presented at the National Museum of African Art to focus exclusively on the tradition of beautiful embroideries, textiles and jewelry from the Kingdom of Morocco, located in Africa's northwestern region. The 67 works presented here are selected from the Indianapolis Museum of Art's vast collection. The nucleus of that collection came from a gift to the Indianapolis Museum in 1933 from the Niblack family of their entire collection of textiles, which was accumulated from Morocco and other countries all over the world.
