Join us on Thursday, November 8th at 5pm for a visit with Art Historian Jennifer Ball and a discussion of the current Godwin-Ternbach Exhibition, From the Desert to the City: The Journey of Late Antique Textiles.
Clothing and other textiles show a remarkable number of popular motifs that appear again and again throughout the Late Antique world. Images of dancers and mounted riders are just two examples that seem ubiquitous across time and place, and also appear on different media, not just textiles. Jennifer Ball, Associate Professor of Art History at Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center CUNY, will discuss how these images were replicated in a pre-internet age and what it suggests about Late Antique views on fashion, status and originality.
From the Desert to the City runs September 13th – December 13th at the Godwin-Ternbach Museum in Klapper Hall. Visit their website for more info!
