The tapestry cycles installed in the Los Angeles Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, by artist John Nava, constitute one of the largest weaving commissions of the last hundred years. They re-introduced tapestry as a medium for monumental works on an architectural scale and incorporated modern, industrial Jacquard weaving technology. In this talk, Nava outlines his personal experience with this technology, the fascinating properties of the form, and the developments that have followed.

Complements the exhibition Woven Gold: Tapestries of Louis XIV.
