From the Textile Society of America:

Textile Society of America’s 2014 Symposium
New Directions: Examining the Past, Creating the Future

Los Angeles, 10–14 September 2014

The theme of the symposium, New Directions: Examining the Past, Creating the Future, explores change and innovation in textiles in the past while looking at the state of the field of textiles, textile study, production and creativity, today and for the future. Where have we been and where are we going? What are the moments that encapsulate change? What are the shifts in direction for cultures, technology, creativity and knowledge? And how do these shifts effect our understanding of textiles?

The program includes two full days of multiple concurrent sessions on the UCLA campus and a full day of plenary sessions at LACMA on Saturday. In addition to the sessions, there will be receptions, special exhibitions, an awards ceremony, and a series of dynamic pre- and post-conference workshops and study tours to local and regional art institutions, collections, and artist studios.

Full symposium registration includes Wednesday night opening reception, Friday Awards Banquet Dinner, and lunches and coffee on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Program details, including lots of eighteenth-century offerings, can be found at the Textile of America’s website:
