The Batik is More Than What Meets the Eyes

In conjunction with a batik exhibition at Ilham Gallery, a one-day symposium has been organized bringing together textile experts “working in different areas working of studies from art history to heritage to anthropology,” to discuss “the historical, cultural and spiritual significance of textiles in the region and beyond.” The convenor and guests give a peek into the various discussions and point to the diverse meanings of “traditional craft” in the course of time and change.
