The ROM's ¡Viva Mexico! Clothing and Culture Exhibition ReviewMexico has taken over the Patrica Harris Gallery of Textiles and Costumes at The ROM to bring Toronto a stunning in-depth look at the country's amazing textiles. ¡Viva Mexico! Clothing and Culture is a vibrant and dynamic textile exhibition that is one of the largest in the world with many textiles never having been displayed before.

From the video showing the dyeing process of wool to the many information panels displayed throughout the exhibit, ¡Viva Mexico! was not only visually stunning, but very educational as well.. I suggest to give yourself plenty of time to not only view the display cases, but to open all the drawers to marvel at the excellent crafted textiles.
I loved this exhibit and highly recommend it. It's a vibrant and colourful exhibit and is the perfect remedy to a dark and dreary cold winter afternoon in Toronto. ¡Viva Mexico! Clothing and Culture runs until May 23, 2016. Please visit ROM for more information.
P.s!: There is a full day symposium called Modern Mexico: Fusions, Fashion, and Folklore, presented in partnership with ¡Viva Mexico! on April 16. Tickets are on sale now!
