Lecture: Peru's Textile Tradition as Decolonial Practice by Francesca Carella Arfinengo
Free, everyone welcome!
For thousands of years, weaving has played a central role in Peruvian society. Carella Arfinengo will present a brief survey of Peru’s textile tradition, from pre-Incan times to today. In this lecture, textiles will be discussed as cultural objects, framed by Andean Indigenous ways of knowing. Carella-Arfinengo will explore the impact of ongoing colonialism on Peruvian fibre traditions and present the work of contemporary designers and artists who use textiles as a means for decolonial practices.
