About the Exhibition
Maroon peoples of Suriname are renowned for tembe, traditional art forms that infuse everyday objects with personal and communal meaning. The 20th-century works on view in Fiiman Tembe: Maroon Arts from Suriname exemplify the bold patterns, vivid color, brass studding, and needlework that typify utilitarian objects such as trays, doors, and textiles.
