Unroll and Unfold: Preserving Textiles and Thangkas to Last
The Conservation Office of the Hong Kong SAR is delighted to announce its upcoming collaboration with IIC and the Palace Museum (PM) in Beijing to host a two and a half days symposium dedicated to textiles conservation.
Besides conservation issues, the symposium will also address the artistic and historical aspects of textile artefacts ranging from thangkas, embroideries, archaeological textiles along the Silk Road, and royal and ethnic costumes across the East and West. 18 distinguished textile specialists and scholars from across the world will present case studies and latest research findings on the subjects.
Accompanying the technical session includes a series of social events giving delegates a chance to establish professional network and to explore some heritage attractions around Hong Kong. Registration will start in the second quarter of 2017 – Join us in Hong Kong to catch up with your colleagues and make new connections!
