Threads of Origin: Historic Textiles from India, Pakistan, and Britain

In conjunction with Museum Day Live, join Bard Graduate Center doctoral candidate Antonia Behan on Saturday, September 23 at 1 pm to explore the history of textiles through Bard Graduate Center’s study collection of South Asian textiles and the John Lockwood Kipling exhibition. In this exclusive workshop, participants will take a discussion-based tour of the exhibition focusing on the intertwined textile histories of India, Pakistan, and Britain. Participants will also handle objects from the study collection to investigate the stories textiles can tell about themselves through their materials and techniques.

Antonia Behan is a doctoral candidate at Bard Graduate Center in design and textile history. She has worked in conservation and collections management for private and public textile collections.
