Special Exhibition Tour

Clothing, Culture, and Context in South Asia: Selections from the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection

Please join Maggie Ordon, Ph.D., Design Studies, UW-Madison, for a guided tour “Reading Stories Across Border,” in which she will look at select pieces in the exhibition to unravel stories of cross-fertilization and sometimes conflict across time and space—following visible traces in designs, while looking for silences in the spaces between.

Maggie Ordon is a recent Design Studies Ph.D. graduate, specializing in the social and cultural aspects of clothing and textiles. She has worked with the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection for eight years.
