The Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection is pleased to host Noa Raviv as its 2017 Ruth Ketterer Harris Lecturer
Noa Raviv, an emerging Israeli fashion artist and designer, will speak publicly on “The Power of Mistakes.” As the featured speaker for the Ruth Ketterer Lecture, Noa says, “I will present my background and my work and talk about the aesthetic of the imperfect, the faulty and the random and why in the right context I believe it can become beautiful, attractive and empowering.” Combining traditional handmade and machine made techniques with the latest 3D printing and laser cutting technologies, the artist/designer credits this gutsy outlook for giving her the courage to be different and leading to Vogue singling her out as one of 2016’s best young designers and her designs being featured in the 2016 exhibition Manus X Machina Fashion in an Age of Technology at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City.
