5820440Ancient Textiles From The Andes
DateFriday 1st May 2020 to Tuesday 15th September 2020
DescriptionThis is a rare opportunity to see ancient Andean textiles of this quality and size exhibited in the UK. Through a major loan from the collector Paul Hughes, alongside pieces from the Whitworth, textiles from c300BC to c1400AD are on display. As well as celebrating breath-taking achievements in textile technique and design, this show explores the complexities of their transition from local ritual to a wider international stage. Vitally, acknowledging the human origins of these objects (from tombs and often from bodies themselves) they are part of a programme of debate about ethics, how objects are contextualised and the impact of conservation on how we understand them.
Time(s)From May 1, Mon-Wed, Fri-Sun 10am-5pm, Thu 10am-9pm, ends Sep 15
