Miao Embroidery as Language
Start Date: 4/19/2018Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 4/19/2018End Time: 1:00 PM


For the diverse Miao peoples living in China, textiles are an important source of cultural identity and communication, particularly given the absence of any written language. In this discussion, art historian Cristin McKnight Sethi will explore how textiles serve as a language for many Miao, and how individuals have recorded history and beliefs with needle and thread.

This program relates to the exhibition Vanishing Traditions: Textiles and Treasures from Southwest China and is part of the museum's weekly Textiles at Twelve series, which explores textile arts and global cultures through films, lectures, gallery talks, and more. Free, no reservations required.
