Central Asian ikat became an international fashion phenomenon largely thanks to Guido Goldman’s passion for a lost art and his enthusiasm for sharing it. The popularization of Central Asian ikat is just one instance of cultural transfer, and this lecture will use several striking examples to illustrate its benefits. Placing art first, and geography second, Goldman and cultural heritage attorney Kate Fitz Gibbon will explore how society and international relations are enriched and challenged by this interchange. This lecture will also explore the contradictions of nationalist art policy in an increasingly globalized world.
