Textiles as Cultural Expressions – theme of 11th TSA Symposium

May '08
Public registration opens April 1, 2008 for the 11th Textile Society of America (TSA) Biennial Symposium set for September 24 through 27, 2008 at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel.

Textiles as Cultural Expressions is the theme for the major international arts event being coordinated by Tom Klobe, Director Emeritus of the University of Hawaii Art Gallery; and Reiko Brandon, renowned fiber artist and former Curator of Textiles at the Honolulu Academy of Arts.

The conference is open to the public with prior registration. You need not be a member of TSA to attend the symposium. Complete program and registration information is currently available online.

Early-bird registration fees through July 1, 2008, range from $295 for students and $385 for TSA members, to $460 for non-members. Extra fees are required for workshops, pre-symposium tours, and the banquet. Special day rates of $150 (no meals included) for on-site registration will be offered, subject to space availability.

Says conference organizer Klobe, who has a reputation for orchestrating successful community-wide arts events such as Crossings '97: France/Hawaii and Crossings 2003: Korea/Hawaii, “This symposium will celebrate the Pacific Rim's strong cultural traditions in the fiber arts and provide venues for our regional fiber artists to display their work for a worldwide audience.”

The international symposium is expected to attract textile collectors, curators, students, educators, scholars and experts from around the world as well as highlight Hawaii's own esteemed museum and private collections and knowledgeable curators through a city-wide schedule of exhibitions.

In addition to presentations of scholarly papers and panel discussions, which form the foundation of the symposium, there will be an array of textile collection site seminar tours (open only to registered symposium participants); more than a dozen individual exhibitions (open to the public) that will highlight the diversity of this culturally rich Pacific location; and an international textile marketplace (open to the public).
