Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Fabricating Power with Balinese Textiles, this symposium expands upon themes of religion, power, and cultural resilience to include textiles from various parts of the Indonesian archipelago. Speakers include anthropologists, textile historians, and curators each of whom will offer reflections on the agency of Indonesian textiles ranging from their spiritual or ritual uses in their culture of origin to their re-contextualization in Western ethnographic and art museums.
