Lecture by Textile Artist Maximo Laura

Thursday, April 4, 6:00-8:00 pm

Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale, Horvitz Auditorium


Textile Artist Maximo Laura


Textile Artist Maximo Laura is one of South America’s most accomplished weavers. He is a fifth-generation master weaver who learned the traditional style of ancient weaving (called cumbimayocs) from his parents and grandparents- all master weavers from Ayacucho, Peru. But while he is ultimately respectful of the iconography and colors of the ancient Huari culture (which predates the Inca culture), it is his juxtaposition of those traditions with his own design elements and narrative that have earned him many international awards, distinctions, and exhibits. Laura is a scholar of textile art and has traveled the world exploring and teaching in his field.

This lecture is complimentary for museum members and $15 for non-members. Reservations are required. RSVP to achadwick@moafl.org or 954-262-0241.
