EXHIBITION: Turning Over An Old Leaf: Contemporary Palm Leaf Work in South and Southeast Asia
Oct 25th, 2019 - Jan 19, 2020:
OPENING RECEPTION: Fri, Oct 5th 6pm - 8pm
For centuries, incising text and images by hand on stacks of dried palm leaves was a dominant way of making books in many parts of South and Southeast Asia. This exhibition looks at new directions in palm leaf work now that printed editions on paper have superseded most of the historical functions of palm leaf manuscripts. Contemporary examples of artworks, manuscripts, and book-like structures from India, Bali, Sri Lanka, Burma (Myanmar), and Thailand will explore current practices of palm leaf work, alongside samples of manuscripts from the historical traditions. The works in the exhibition draw upon multiple research trips by Mary Austin and Betsy Davids.
Wed, Dec 11th 6pm - 8pm
Karen Zukor of Zukor Art Conservation specializes in the repair and preservation of art and artifacts on paper - prints, drawings, watercolors, pastels, documents, maps, manuscripts, and rare books. This presentation will focus on the paper conservation and preservation work Karen has undertaken in Haiti and India, as well as some of the challenges of working outside of one’s own studio.
