Godwin-Ternbach Exhibition Talk: Artist Caroline Wells Chandler

Join Queens-based artist, Caroline Wells Chandler, as he discusses his work in the exhibition From the Desert to the City: The Journey of Late Ancient Textiles. Stemming out of a 1970’s feminist craft history, Chandler’s brightly colored hand crocheted figures explore queerness and the art historical cannon. Chandler twists the language of folk by using the materials, processes, and the archetypes of conservative culture to create affirmational queer arenas.

Godwin-Ternbach Event: Buried Beauties – Uncovering the trail of Late Antique Textiles

Join us for an exhibition talk on Thursday, November 29 2018 at 5 pm at the Godwin-Ternbach Museum, 405 Klapper Hall.

The original excavators and collectors of Late Antique objects followed practices that often inadvertently divorced the objects from their context. In light of this, the provenance of antiquities, such as those in the Rose Choron collection, are difficult to determine. Ava Katz, Queens College Art History student and former GTM intern,  will discuss how this relates to the current exhibition and how provenance of some of the objects in the collection was found.
