Kate Fitz Gibbon, attorney, cultural heritage law; Guido Goldman, collector and 2018 Myers Award recipient
The Textile Museum, Washington DC, April 13, 2018,5:30 PM:Reception, 6 PM:Lecture
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.
This program relates to the exhibition Binding the Clouds: The Art of Central Asian Ikat. Fee: $10/museum members and GW students, faculty, and staff; $15/public. Advance registration is required; space is limited. Register online or call 202-994-7394.

In recent years, discussions about the 25th anniversary of the passage of Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act of 1990 (NAGPRA) and a spurt of highly-contested auctions in France featuring cultural patrimony, have made clear that more needs to be done in the field of repatriation, both on the home front and internationally. Spurred by these occurrences, lawmakers, museums, and tribal communities have been pushing government, auction houses, and collectors alike toward a more ethical treatment of sacred cultural belongings. This discussion delves into recent policy and proposed solutions beyond NAGPRA.
