Posted October 01, 2018 09:08:31The first exhibition of textile goods from the capital of Guatemala will take place on Sunday at the Art Gallery of the Americas.
The exhibition, entitled “La Paz de la Comunidad de Tres Ligas” (“The Ligature Factory”), will focus on Guatemala’s textile industry and how the country’s socialist economy was transformed during the last century.
It is set to include garments made in Guatemala City and its surrounding towns and villages, along with products from the textile industry in neighboring Honduras.
The textile industry, which has been a staple of Guatemala’s economy since the country was independent in 1828, has been an integral part of the countrys economy since its founding.
The museum has already been in operation for about 20 years and has a history of exhibiting items from the Guatemalan industry.
The museum has previously displayed items made in China and South Korea, as well as items from China and Vietnam.
The exhibition will focus mainly on Guatemalan textiles.
The exhibit, which will be open to the public, will also feature a series of new works, created by a group of artists, from the city of Monterrey, located in the province of El Salvador.
It was recently nominated for a Peabody Award and has received support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
