Curated by artist and textile expert Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada, "mnemonikos: Art Of Memory In Contemporary Textiles" features works from 29 artists, Thai and international, who created their works through various techniques, from dyeing, painting, weaving, stitching, printing, laser etching to heat transfer and vacuum coating of metal onto fabric and more.
