I was lucky enough to spend a day in Toronto earlier this month and spent my time with Joe Lewis and Janet Hayward wandering around the Royal Ontario Museum and the Textile Museum. What a wonderful day. So many marvels.
A highlight of the ROM for me was this large wall piece by El Anatsui, a textile hero of mine.
The Textile Museum was hosting an incredible exhibit of the gorgeous larger-than-life, sumptuously dyed kimono by Itchiku Kubota. This is only the second time his work has been shown in Canada. I have been a fan ever since Nicole Robillarde gave me the catalogue of his first exhibit in Hull in 1995. How amazing to be able to see his work in person!
