Annapurna Mamidipudi: “Looking, Touching and Smelling the Malkha Fabrics”

October 24, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

As part of the Rethinking Innovation, Textile and Material Culture series, Dr. Annapurna Mamidipudi (Deutsches Museum, Munich, Germany) will present “Looking, Touching and Smelling the Malkha Fabrics.”

Knowledge of color, in the absence of patents and copyrights, this presentation will show, is claimed and attributed through the innovation of material, of socio-technical ensembles that produce and consume color, and of the meaning bestowed on the objects of color –in other words, through telling color by smell and touch.
