In the Heart of the Library Exhibition: August 18 – September 16, 2016


With brilliant colours, the Huichol yarn painters of Mexico record the stories and symbols of their ancient shamanic culture. Anthropologist Hope MacLean collected these vibrant works by some of the finest Huichol artists during her field research in Mexico.

Hope MacLean teaches at the University of Ottawa and is the author of Yarn Paintings of the Huichol (Singing Deer Press, 2005) and The Shaman’s Mirror: Visionary Art of the Huichol (University of Texas Press, 2015). She can be reached at

LOGO TRIENNALE 2016. Med ResHope will be giving a talk about the yarn paintings as part of our In The Heart of the Library Series on September 10th at 3:00pm.

Presented as part of La Triennale International des Arts Textiles en Outaouais
