The Cotsen Textile Traces Global Roundtable

To commemorate the donation of the Cotsen Textile Traces Study Collection and the creation of the new Cotsen Textile Traces Study Center, join us for a two-day roundtable with distinguished textile artists, conservators and scholars from around the world. Beginning with an introduction to Lloyd Cotsen’s collecting and an overview of the collection and study center, the roundtable will feature five one-hour panels highlighting textiles from five continents, including an Indian robe for Indonesia, a Kuba hat and Captain Cook’s sample book of tapa cloth. This inaugural roundtable seeks to encourage textile research, facilitate critical discussion, support cultural diversity and preserve cultural heritage by making direct connections between collection objects and current research and art-making.
