Symposium : Trade, Ties, and Transformations: Stories on Textile and Modernity, 14/05/ 2016, Ilham Gallery, Kuala Lumpur

“Held in conjunction with the exhibition Love Me in My Batik: Modern Batik Art from Malaysia and Beyond, the symposium explores the changes in values and meanings in what we recognise as a ‘traditional’ craft of a particular culture when certain technological, social and cultural changes occur. Broadening the scope of the exhibition, the symposium brings together a panel of speakers to examine how meanings, patterns of circulation and artistic forms in batik and other textile traditions of Southeast Asia have been transformed since from the late nineteenth century.”
