Silk was first cultivated more than 6,000 years ago in China, where it functioned as a fabric and later as a currency. In this gallery talk, curatorial fellow Talitha Maria G. Schepers will dive deeper into the world of Chinese silk production (sericulture), trade with 16th-century Europe, and the role women played in making silk. The talk focuses on an installation in the 17th-century Dutch and Flemish art gallery (2300). The installation will close on June 16.


This gallery talk is part of our New on View series, highlighting recent gallery installations and presenting new insights into recent acquisitions or old favorites.


Led by:

Talitha Maria G. Schepers, Stanley H. Durwood Foundation Curatorial Fellow, Division of European and American Art
