From Textile museum description for the exhibit “RED “-

Red is a potent color. This exhibition explored the uses and meanings of red in textiles across time and place. From the pre-Columbian high Andes to the 21st-century streets of New York, red textiles are a compelling symbol, representing passion, power, status and human emotion itself.
Before the invention of synthetic dyes, achieving this highly evocative color in textiles was no easy task. The difficulty of its production heightened the importance and allure of red cloth which became a prestige commodity in many societies. The textiles on view illustrated the complex usage of red – not only to denote prestige, but also to celebrate love and beauty, to protect against evil, to promote good fortune and to mark life cycle passages such as marriage and death. The earliest textile in the exhibition was more than 2,500 years old while the most recent was less than five. Objects shown in RED included an ancient Peruvian tunic border fragment, a Turkish velvet panel, a Navajo rug, a couture ball gown, an AIDS Awareness ribbon and a series of photographs depicting the use of red textiles in contemporary life.
