Indian Textiles at the V&A Jasleen Kandhari Saturday 09 January 2016

A visit to the Victoria & Albert Museum's major Fabric of India Exhibition is planned for Saturday, 9th January, 2016.  Jasleen Kandhari, who will be our lecturer at our first meeting of 2016, will give us an introductory talk in the Nehru Gallery of Indian Art, to help us understand the textiles we will see on display, and she will then accompany members into the exhibition.  Jasleen will give us handouts and a glossary of Indian textile terms to assist with the appreciation of the exhibition, and she will circulate with us for approximately an hour, speaking to us individually or in small groups about specific exhibits which attract our attention.  You are then free to continue to enjoy the exhibition at your leisure.

Jasleen is an accredited NADFAS lecturer, and is an expert in the artistic heritage of South Asia.  She also lectures at numerous academic institutions, and has published several academic articles in the field of Indian art and textiles.  She teaches courses on Indian & Asian textiles at Oxford University, Dept of Continuing Education and is the editor of 'Indian Textiles' for Textiles Asia Journal.
