On display from 12 April 2024


SARI/STATEMENT is an upcoming exhibition about the contemporary sari in India and its diaspora.

Woven from silk, from or distressed denim. Knotted, pleated or belted. Worn out of protest, celebration or simply to go work. The statement sari is the sari that has been radically renewed for today's world. 

SARI/STATEMENT showcases the sari as one of today's biggest global fashion stories. In this fashion exhibition, see how designers, wearers and makers in their own way give meaning to and make a statement with the sari: as fashion, as self-expression or act of resistance and in many other ways.  

Visit the exhibition from April 12 to November 3, 2024 at the Wereldmuseum Amsterdam. 

This exhibition is a touring exhibition from the Design Museum, London. 'The Offbeat Sari' was on display there from May 19 to September 17, 2023.
