The Metropolitan Museum of Art Textile Conservation Colloquium: Recent Research

“Gain an inside perspective on the fascinating work of The Met’s Department of Textile Conservation. From investigating silk production in Japan and block printing in India to conserving precious tapestries and exploring applications for new technologies, conservators share their research and discoveries from the past year. To further highlight the broad scope of the department’s interests, the colloquium also features a presentation of traditional Indian block printing by guest artist Sufiyan Ismail Khatri, a tenth-generation artisan whose family has been involved in the art of Ajrakh printing since the fifteenth century.”
