Jim Bassler: Contemporary Voices and Ancient Threads

Fans of Craft in America will recognize Jim Bassler from the episode entitled Origins, in which he talks about the rich heritage and tradition of fiber art, and how his travel to and study of those traditions has informed his modern work.
On January 12th, 2014 at 2:00 pm, in UCLA's Fowler Museum, guest curator Elena Phipps will join Jim as well as photographer John Cohen in a discussion of Andean weaving tradition that inspires their creative processes. This fascinating talk is planned in conjunction with The Peruvian Four-Selvaged Cloth: Ancient Threads/New Directions, which is on display now through mid-February.

More details about both the talk and exhibition are available on the Fowler's website.
