WOVEN SPLENDOR FROM TIMBUKTU TO TIBET - From 11 April to 10 August, 2008 the New York Historical Society will be showing this exhibition of "Exotic Rugs and Textiles from New York Collectors", specifically the members of the Hajji Baba Club in celebration of its 75th anniversary. Their website says:
Featured will be approximately 75 objects belonging to current Club members, including rugs, costume and other Near Eastern/Central Asian textiles. The thematic exhibition will explore how rugs were produced andn used in their countries of origin, as well as how Americans initially understood these objects. In addition to textiles, the show will incorporate photographs depicting Oriental rugs in the homes of club founders in the early 20th century and images revealing how such objects were originally made available through galleries and World's Fairs.

The exhibition will have an accompanying catalogue written by rug scholar Dr. Jon Thompson. The website is here: ... id=9861806
and you can see the Karakalpak weaving to which I refer in the Dai blanket thread.

The NY Historical Society is at 170 Central Park West, New York City.
