"Conserving Modernity: the Articulation of Innovation"

9th North American Textile Conservation Conference
San Francisco, California
November 12-15, 2013

Synthetics. New ideas to old problems. Wearable art. Creative
treatment solutions. Evolving installations. Collaborations with
contemporary artists. These are some of the topics that will be
addressed in two days of papers and posters presented in the deYoung
Museum in Golden Gate Park for the 9th biennial North American
Textile Conservation Conference.

Two days of workshops will precede the presentations and will cover
aqueous cleaning solutions for textiles, natural and synthetic fiber
identification, and progressive display techniques. There will also
be workshops offered by San Francisco artists on innovative
techniques for resist dyeing and working with ribbon to custom
design trims and other embellishments.

The opening reception will take place in the Jackson Square District
hosted by Peter Pap Oriental Rugs and the Lotus gallery. The closing
gala will be held at the Asian Art Museum.

Following the conference, two additional tours will be offered: a
cultural adventure throughout the East Bay and a tour of the Levi
Strauss and Co Archives.
