Lecture: Molas: Kuna Women's Art

This event is expired.

Dr. Mari Lyn Salvador, Director of the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology, UC Berkeley, has conducted extensive research on molas, the distinctive blouses made and worn by Kuna Indian women. Dr. Salvador will discuss the history of Kuna traditional dress; mola making and the social system that enables time for sewing; mola types, styles, and themes; and the aesthetic system and artistic criteria that guide mola making from the perspective of the women themselves. Dr. Salvador has published in the areas of art and culture, ethno-aesthetics, and the aesthetics of ritual performance. Her areas of specialization include santero art in New Mexico, ephemeral art and ritual performance in the Azores, Portugal, and contemporary museum studies.
