Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles to host symposium in Nov

Jul '13
The Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles (QSMT), located on the grounds of the Grand Palace, Bangkok, Thailand, will host an international multi-disciplinary symposium from the 6th to the 9th of November 2013. The QSMT opened to the public in May 2012.

It collects, displays, and preserves textiles from Southeast, East, and South Asia, with an emphasis on the textile heritage of Thailand and the couture wardrobe of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit.

In addition to pre- and post-conference tours, the program will offer a unique opportunity to see behind the scenes at the new museum and visit private textile collections not accessible to the general public.

Topics of the presentations will include Indian, Chinese and Cambodian textiles at the Thai court; a late 19th-century royal collection of Indonesian batik recently discovered in the Grand Palace Inner Court; Thai influence on Burmese royal dress; textile tribute between the courts of mainland Southeast Asia; the conservation and preservation of royal objects in Thailand and beyond; fashion design for modern royalty; and the history and costuming of Khon, the traditional court dance-drama recently revived by Her Majesty Queen Sirikit.
