Opis (Description): kaj je “Svilna cesta”? Pred več kot tisoč leti so se ključne trgovske dejavnosti med Azijo in Evropo odvijale po poteh od Perzije in Črnega morja do Kitajske, prek centralne Azije in Tibeta. Tedanje plačilno sredstvo je bila svila. Od tu izraz “Svilna pot”. Kot kaže zemljevid, je staro karavansko “Svilno pot” gradil sistem trgovskih prehodov. Razstava “When Silk Was Gold: Central Asian and Chinese Textiles in The Cleveland and Metropolitan Museums of Art” (1998), prikazuje stenske preproge in svile, tkane in okrašene z zlatimi nitmi. Vključuje štiriinšestdeset izdelkov iz 8.-15. stoletja. Poleg lepote, vrednosti in vsebnosti zlata v umetniških delih, je to priložnost za preučevanje vloge tkanin. Tkanine so imele pomembno vlogo v politiki, gospodarstvu in kulturi. Družbeni položaj so opredeljevale tkanine in oblačila. Tkanine so bile plačilno sredstvo. Tkanine narekujejo modo. Razstavo spremlja slikovni katalog, z bibliografijami. Razstavo sta pripravila kuratorja: Anne E. Wardwell (CMA) in James C. Y. Watt (Metropolitan Museum).

Description (Opis): Ancient tapestries and silks, woven and embroidered with shimmering gold and vibrantly colored thread, are on view this autumn in a unique exhibition: "When Silk Was Gold: Central Asian and Chinese Textiles in The Cleveland and Metropolitan Museums of Art". The exhibition opens at The Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA) on October 26, 1997, and remains on view here through January 4, 1998. It features sixty-four textiles from the 8th through early 15th centuries. The fragile nature of textiles makes this a once-in-a-lifetime event. After Cleveland, the exhibition will travel to only one other venue, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, where it will be on view March 3 through May 17, 1998. The exhibition has been conceived by Anne E. Wardwell, curator of textiles at the CMA, and James C.Y.Watt, the Brooke Russell Astor Senior Curator of Asian Art at the Metropolitan Museum.
