Sommaire d'exposition

How have textiles – among the most fragile and vulnerable artifacts – survived over centuries? Learn about the materials and techniques found in archaeological textiles and the conditions that have allowed for their survival through this exhibition of Peruvian and Coptic textiles from the Textile Museum of Canada collection. Woven cloth, basketry, cordage and matting have been integral to every culture and every historical moment – Paleolithic to contemporary – providing direct evidence of social, political, and economic conditions over time and space. The Eternity Code explores early textile technologies and their roles in symbolic communication through ciphers, signs and patterns as well as their social functions in ceremony, ritual and everyday life.
