Out of Asia is a pop-up exhibition that looks at the movement of textile techniques and designs, as well as garment ideas from Asia (notably China, India, Indonesia and Japan) over a period of nearly two thousand years and how these and similar items have influenced Western textiles and garments. The exhibition and related talk is based on a range of objects from the TRC Collection.
