Modern materials, whether as art or everyday objects, are the basis of the comtermporary material world. Accordingly objects encountered in museums and collections increasingly represent a broad spectrum of materials whose preservation may be without precedent. The conference considers modern materials in the textile field as a subject area in its own right. Topics range from familiar textile types, such as costume, to more unusual applications in suitcases, wall hangings, furniture and theatre scenery; other papers prompt the reader to consider what makes a textile modern.
