Victoria Rovine: The universality of textiles


June 17, 2015 | Angie Barker

“Every morning, when we get up and we get dressed, we are reprojecting an identity we’ve already established for ourselves,” says associate professor of art Victoria Rovine.

Since the early 1990s, Rovine has conducted research in Mali, where she first discovered her love of textiles. “Textiles are maybe the most transcultural artistic medium that we have, but we tend to take them for granted.”

During the 201415 academic year, Rovine participated in the New Faculty Program, and shared her passion for clothing in a microtalk. Watch this audio slideshow to see and hear more about Rovine’s work.
