Friend Center, Room 101

Princeton University Art Museum hosts a talk by Kristen Windmuller-Luna, curator of African art at the Cleveland Museum of Art, titled Clothing for the Ancestors: Global Textiles in Nigerian Egúngún Masquerade Costumes. Egúngún masquerade costumes swirl into motion during festivals honoring departed ancestors. Globally sourced, their layered fabric panels reflect local aesthetics and ritual practices. Often made from reused clothing, they also illuminate regional fashions and consumer tastes in imported fabric.
