Women's Interchange at SLAC (WIS) presents
Mung Lar Lam
Artist and Educator

Speaking on

"The Fabric of Women's Work"

The Industrial Revolution (1750-1860) brought technological
innovations that changed the world.  The textiles industry was
at the forefront and developed the most inventions at that
time. New machines enabled large-scale production that
impacted and changed all aspects of life, most especially
women's work. Lam's in-progress research centers on the
industrialization of the textiles industry, and she will describe
its effect on women's work, in the past and now.

Working primarily with the medium of textiles, Mung Lar Lam
combines formal aesthetics with issues of labor and
women's work. Her work has been shown in galleries and
museums nationally and internationally.
