I happened to be looking at the Threads of Life website today and found news of an exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide, in which includes four contemporary textiles woven by women working with Threads of Life in Bali, Sumba and Sulawesi. So very excellent that new pieces are being displayed, viewed and valuded alongside older examples in the collection of the institution.

The exhibition is Beneath the winds: Masterpieces of Southeast Asian Art and runs from 18 NOVEMBER TO 29 JANUARY 2012 and further information about the exhibit can be found on the website of the Art Gallery of South Australia.

Both web links above give info on a new publication associated with the exhibition available from the Art Gallery shop.

I contacted Jean Howe to congratulate all at Threads of Life on the recognition of their contemporary weavings. Jean very kindly emailed me a Pdf file of a Quantas Magazine article (Nov 201) on ToL written by Nigel Hopkins and which includes a very positive quote from James Bennett of the Art Gallery of South Australia at the end. I attach the Pdf. Be warned it is a large file (2.65 MB). It is only because I have administrator's rights that I can attach such a large file!

For those who don't want to download the file I have hunted on the web and found the on-line version of the article on the Quantas website.

I have often found that in flight magazines are often a good source of interesting information, including good photos, of regional textiles.
