Ruth Barnes is the Thomas Jaffe Curator of Indo-Pacific Art at the Yale University Art Gallery. She is an art historian in the field of South and Southeast Asian textiles, with a particular interest in the social history of material culture and its anthropological interpretation, and has studied textiles from South and Southeast Asia, as well as from the Islamic world, from this perspective. We talk with Dr. Barnes about the new Indo-Pacific Gallery.
