Ancient Women in Textile Exhibition Opening

Date & Time

  • April 18, 2019
    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The second instalment in the Gendered Voices exhibition series that explores a diverse aspect of traditional female identity. In this exhibition, the relationship of women to textile production is brought to light through the stories of ancient mythological figures. Scheuing recounts these tales through her work with the Jacquard loom. This unique loom was invented by Lord Byron’s daughter Ada Lovelace. It has gone down in history as one of the world’s first computers. Ruth Scheuing uses this technology as a means to explore women’s place in history but also create a medium which fuses the past and future. Scheuing’s work uniquely weaves together futuristic technologies with ancient oral traditions. Please join us for this unique experience from a master weaver. Presented in partnership with Crafted Vancouver.

The exhibition’s opening night will be held within the museum from 7:00pm to 9:00pm, where light refreshments will be served. Admission is free.
