‘Kosode’ Exhibition Wins Curator’s Award

The L.A. County Museum of Art exhibition “When Art Became Fashion: Kosode in Edo-Period Japan” is a winner of the fifth annual Curator’s Committee Exhibit Competition.

The national award recognizing exhibition scholarship, interpretation and design will be presented at the annual meeting of the American Assn. of Museums in Fort Worth, Tex., on May 17.

The international loan exhibition, which was on view at the museum from Nov. 15, 1992, through Feb. 7, 1993, was the largest display of the kosode--the precursor of the kimono--ever presented in the United States.
