For anyone who is in San Francisco on September 25, 2010 then do take the opportunity to hear forum member Sandra Niessen (author of Legacy in cloth: Batak textiles of Indonesia]) give a public talk on the occasion of the Exhibition exploring the traditional Ulos textiles of the Batak People of North Sumatra, Indonesia being put on by the Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia in San Francisco. www.kjrisfo.net

I wish I could get along see the exhibition!

This review is late, too (Can you tell I just finished an essay I was working on?), but the event at the residence of the Indonesian Consul General was so very special that I would still like to share this, especially as forum members received the announcement that it would happen.

On Friday 24 and Saturday 25 September, the Indonesian Consulate of San Francisco celebrated Indonesia’s Independence Day. Consul General, the Honourable Asianto Sinambela, made good use of the traditional reception of the diplomatic community in San Francisco to promote Indonesian culture. This time, the textiles of the Batak people of North Sumatra received their full due by means of an exhibit of superb examples both old and new. The diplomats were treated to a preview and a delicious Indonesian meal. The next day, the general public was free to come and take in the exhibition as well as a demonstration and a talk by yours truly.

The old textiles belonged to the collections of Noeleke Glenn Klavert of Indoarts and Curt and Keith Clemson of Dancing Threads and filled three rooms of the beautiful residence, Wisma Indonesia. The fourth room was dedicated to modern textiles and the explanation by the owner and dealer, Naomi Butarbutar, who came from Jakarta especially for this event.

Both days were very successful; more than 200 people attended each day. The mood was warm and friendly. The days were a true example of the highly esteemed Indonesian hospitality and the great wealth of Indonesian culture.
