To highlight the theme of the upcoming International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS), namely ‘Asia and Europe/Asia in Europe’ (Leiden, 16-19 July), the TRC is organising an Asia Week with a special exhibition and a programme of workshops and lectures.

The exhibition Out of Asia: 2000 years of fascination with Eastern textiles will reflect upon the influence of Asia upon European and Middle Eastern textiles and fashion. It will include both urban garments and regional dress that are made from Chinese, Indian and Indonesian textiles, as well as European and Middle Eastern textiles that have been influenced by Asian and ‘Oriental’ forms. There will also be much older examples of East-West textile connections in the form of silk textile fragments transported two thousand years ago along the Silk Road, and a Central Asian inspired Roman-period textile from Egypt. Other examples date from the eighteenth century to the present day. There will also be a special display of thirteenth century Indian indigo textiles produced for the Middle Eastern market and indirectly that of Europe. The exhibition is open to the public from 1 July until 22 August 2019.
