What to expect
Join Andrew Mashigo for a group tour through The Offbeat Sari, our major exhibition celebrating the contemporary sari featuring the finest creations of our time from designers, wearers, and craftspeople in India.
Conventionally an unstitched cloth wrapped around the body, which can be draped in a variety of ways, the fluid form has enabled the sari to morph and absorb changing cultural influences. The exhibition unravels the sari as a metaphor for the complex definitions of India today.
