MAY 15, 2019 aT 7PM

Elena Kanagy-Loux is a lacemaker and a Collections Specialist at the Antonio Ratti Textile Center at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In 2015 she traveled to 14 different countries to study lacemaking and interview living lacemakers. Her talk, titled "Lace: Connecting Threads of Understanding," will include an account of how she got into lace and what she discovered on her travels. She will also discuss examples of lace in the Met’s collection that, she says,  “seem ordinary until you analyze the unusual construction techniques from a maker's perspective.”

Kanagy-Loux completed a BFA in Textile/Surface Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology and an MA in Costume Studies at New York University. The subject of her master’s thesis was making lace by hand in the contemporary world. She was the founder and manager of the Brooklyn Lace Guild, a membership organization devoted to the preservation of handmade lace. 

Articles on lace by Kanagy-Loux have appeared in the Fashion Studies Journal and other publications. She has given numerous presentations, lectures, and workshops at venues including Pratt Institute, the Textile Arts Center, the Yale British Gallery, and Aalto University in Helsinki, Finland.
