Textiles do things. They keep us warm, protect us from the sun, and make us feel beautiful. In northeastern Laos, however, textiles do other things as well. They bring babies, keep evil spirits at bay, heal us, and take our spirits to heaven when we die. Not only are these exquisite weavings the central vehicles of artistic expression, but they are also catalysts for personal and social rejuvenation.

Dr. Christy Junkerman earned a BA in English from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and a PhD from UC Berkeley. She teaches late medieval and early modern Italian art, and is also the coordinator of the 100W course for the School of Art and Design at San Jose State University. Her dissertation, an interdisciplinary study of early sixteenth-century Venetian half-length paintings of women who were probably courtesans, examined this large group of paintings from the standpoints of social history, rhetoric, lyric poetry, and the paragone between painting and poetry.
Richard Diebenkorn provoked an important dialogue between representation and abstraction during his period of work in Berkeley. In 1955, when he was nationally acclaimed as an abstract artist, he confounded the art world with his dramatic shift to representation. Diebenkorn started out painting in a representational mode but later switched to Abstract Expressionism while studying and teaching at the California School of Fine Arts, between 1946 and 1949. Then, during his Berkeley years, Diebenkorn changed and enhanced his working methods, favored themes, and artistic identity.
