Weavers of the ancient Nazca culture of present-day Peru featured plants and animals in the small, colorful, three-dimensional trims that border their textiles. Join Elena Phipps, independent scholar and curator as well as former textiles conservator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, for a gallery conversation and hands-on demonstration of Nazca techniques in the special exhibition “Super/Natural: Textiles of the Andes.”
Persons with disabilities who would like to request an accessibility accommodation for an Art Institute program are encouraged to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org two weeks in advance of the program.
