Curators’ Perspectives: Textile Treasures from Asia in Weaving Splendor
Presented by Ling-en Lu, curator of Chinese art; Kimberly Masteller, Jean McCray Beals Curator of South and Southeast Asian Art; and Yayoi Shinoda, assistant curator of Japanese art, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
You will be introduced to works ranging from intimate objects worn on the body to objects that define and enliven interior spaces, to dynamic costumes that support narratives in performances, to symbol-laden objects that communicate power and wealth. Each one of these works reveals a fascinating story, including a golden robe made for a Chinese prince of the Qing dynasty, a silk carpet created by the ruler of Persia as a gift to the Pope in Rome, and monumental Japanese tapestries produced for Western consumption around the turn of the twentieth century.
FREE Event; first come, first seated.
