We are deeply grateful to Dr. Kristin Otto, Curator at the NMSU University Museum, for inviting us to collaborate with the Museum on an upcoming exhibit of Maya weavers and weaving in Chiapas, Mexico. Below is an announcement from Dr. Otto taken from our March 2021 monthly email newsletter:


“In preparation for an exhibition opening Fall 2021, I have been collaborating with Weaving for Justice, their partner cooperatives in Chiapas, Mexico and museum students to curate a new exhibition centered on Maya textiles from Chiapas and the many layered relationships created through them. Inspired by Christine Eber’s When a Woman Rises book and title, the exhibition will pay particular attention to issues of generational difference, global circulation, and township practice by highlighting weavers and work from Chamula, Chenalhó, Venustiano Carranza, and Zinacantán. The exhibition will also involve input from partner cooperatives in Chiapas through sections and programs highlighting their voices and facilitating exchange, and by commissioning and documenting new pieces for the University Museum’s permanent collection. The exhibition will be open from Fall 2021 – Summer 2022, and the University Museum is excited to welcome you into the space!
