Kashmir Shawls - Tuesday October 11th 2022, 6 pm EDT

Free for students. Write to me before 10/9 for free zoom link

Mixed zoom event: recordings, slides, Q&A, audience show and tell. 

David Reisbord, retired neurologist presents his Kashmir shawl collection. This event will consist of an edited recording of a presentation made for the Textile Museum Associates of Southern California's annual Patron visit and reception, which was a virtual collections visit in 2020. The presentation will focus on how David uses precisely dated paintings by European artists to date his pieces. We will also see a 'Show and Tell' of some of David's treasures in conversation with Clarissa M. Esguerra, Associate Curator of Costume and Textiles at Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).

The recording will be punctuated with slides to delve deeper into technical details of woven and embroidered shawls, and how to differentiate hand loomed Kani shawls from Jacquard shawls.
