Featured Event

Textiles from Punjab

To Be Announced | 10:30am-12:30pm
The San Diego Museum of Art Boardroom, Balboa Park

Embroidered textiles from Punjab, popularly referred to as phulkaris (“floral work”), are diverse in their compositions and patterns. One form of phulkaris known as sainchis are notable for their whimsical depictions of animals, birds, and human figures and seem to offer the viewer insight into the lives and characters of rural Punjab – the location for much phulkari production. In this lecture, Dr. McKnight Sethi will look closely at a select group of sainchi phulkaris and offer new ways of considering these textiles given the details of their iconographical programs and individual histories.
