MADE IN MEXICO The Rebozo in Art, Culture & Fashion | | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

This summer the Fashion and Textile Museum stages the first-ever exhibition on the rebozo – the classic Mexican shawl made famous in 20th century culture by artist Frida Kahlo. Made in Mexico explores the key role textiles have played in promoting Mexican culture worldwide from the 17th century to the present day. Rebozos on display include major loans from: the Franz Mayer Museum, Mexico City; the Museum of Textiles, Oaxaca; the British Museum and rebozos from private collections that have never been shown in public before. Contemporary Mexican and UK artists, photographers, fashion and textile designers also present new work created in response to the rebozo and Mexican textiles – including Francisco Toledo, Graciela Iturbide, Carla Fernandez, Zandra Rhodes and Kaffe Fassett.

Auctions spark Olympic Museum manager’s passion for history

Auctions spark Olympic Museum manager’s passion for history | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Like many museum professionals, Lake Placid Olympic Museum director Alison Haas fell in love with the U.S. version of the "Antiques Roadshow" television program when it first aired on PBS in 1997.

A 1996 graduate of the Potsdam High School, Haas was studying art history at the time at St. Lawrence University in Canton.

"On Saturday mornings, I would wake up while all my other friends were sleeping in, and I would go to auctions," Haas said. "And I became obsessed with objects."

No room for archaeology archive in 27% of museums

No room for archaeology archive in 27% of museums | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

A survey by the Society of Museum Archaeologists (SMA) has exposed a lack of storage space and curatorial expertise in English museums dealing with archaeological archives.

The survey of 134 museums found that 36 could not accept archaeological archives because of lack of space.

It also revealed that museums in 47 local authorities were no longer collecting, while 70% of museums had no specialist archaeology curator.

SMA chairwoman Gail Boyle said: “Many of the museums that responded are local authority museums that have no statutory funding, so they are often targeted [for cuts]. It has become prevalent over time and is getting worse.

“Archaeological field units are having to store their work, as there is nowhere for them to deposit it.

Sad, but not a surprise. I've watched 'Museum Secrets' and see them pull stuff out of storage bins and talk about things found, again.
diana buja's curator insight, March 3, 2013 3:32 AM

Without the archives, what value are the 'finds' to which they are linked?  Very sad.
