Stitching knows no boundaries - it travels around the world and traditions follow the nomad or displaced needle; the conscripted prisoner and the willing migrant. This spectacular exhibition showcases 32 quilts stitched by women who are heirs of enslaved or merchant Africans and who left their East African shores for Goa in India as far back as the 16th century. These women of African descent, known as Siddis in India, have adopted and adapted local traditions of quilting to create unique quilting styles and designs.
The traveling exhibition is co-curated by Dr. Henry J. Drewal, Evjue-Bascom Professor of African and African Diaspora Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Dr. Sarah K. Khan, Director of the Tasting Cultures Foundation.
