Beyond the bag: textiles as containers

From january 28 to june 5 2005
Tapestries, carpets, textiles
Bags fill out the practical functions of holding, of transporting and of protecting daily objects, they are also the object of a certain creativity. The exhibit celebrates the use of textile as a useful container and gives us the opportunity of examining the various possibilities that different cultures have borrowed in order to meet their needs.
