2015 HANCOCK FELLOW: REIKO SUDO LECTURE
Reiko Sudo is the Artistic Director of renowned Japanese textile producer, NUNO Corporation. She has pioneered 'techno-textiles' - a rich intersection between traditional artisan techniques and industrial design processes.
Since 1984, NUNO has worked with over 50 weaving and dyeing centres throughout Japan to create unique textiles. Throughout this period, NUNO's textiles have garnered acclaim worldwide and been selected for inclusion in many museum collections. Reiko delivered a lecture exploring how NUNO’s approach to textiles has changed over the decades and promises to continue changing toward the future. In the gallery NUNO designers’ sketches and test samples are displayed, highlighting their interaction with local Japanese artisans and demonstrating the processes and work that goes into creating every textile.
