the MIA. About the exhibit: Dazzling Central Asian textiles from the late nineteenth and early twentieth century were on display at the Minneapolis Institute of Art (MIA). Sixty dynamic and intricately patterned embroideries from the nomadic and rural peoples living along the fabled Silk Road were on view June 2 through August 26, 2007. The embroideries, ranging from highly abstracted wall hangings to boldly colored horse covers, reflect the diversity and aesthetic traditions of Central Asia as well as the identity and cultural values of their creators-the horse-breeding Lakai Uzbek, the agrarian Kungrat Uzbek, and the settled peoples of Samarkand and Bukhara. The exhibition, organized by the MIA, and the accompanying catalogue are a celebration of the gift of ninety-seven embroideries to the museum from the superb collection of Jack A. and Aviva Robinson.
