Images Take Flight. Feather Art in Mexico and Europe
Marking the release of this much awaited publication on Mexico's feather art, curator Ilona Katzew will moderate a roundtable discussion with authors Diana Fane, Ellen Pearlstein, and Gerhard Wolf. Highly valued since ancient times, feather mosaics captured the imagination of Europeans because of the iridescence of the feathers and the great skill with which they were applied. The distinguished authors will discuss this tradition from ancient to contemporary times, as well as the technique and materials employed to create these striking objects. The program will be followed by a book signing on the Los Angeles Times Central Court, outside the LACMA Store.
This event will be documented photographically and/or recorded on video. Please let us know if you do not agree with the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz using images in which you might be recognizable for event documentation and public relation purposes (e.g. social media).
