Film Screening: Wax Print (93 minutes)
February 9, 2020 @ 2:00 pm
In many African homes, fabrics lay unassuming and taken for granted. Surprised to learn that ‘traditional’ African wax-printed fabrics were a colonial invention made in the UK and Holland, filmmaker & fashion designer, Aiwan Obinyan, sets out on a journey across four continents to trace the 200 year history of this iconic textile that has come to visually represent Africa and Africans. This event will also include a post discussion and textile pop-up with African textiles on view by local artisans. Watch the Trailer. Member: $6; Non-member: $8.
