I have made several mistakes posting this so hope it doesn't appear too many times!

I recently attended the Sari to Sarong conference and exhibition at the National Gallery in Canberra Australia, which was stunning. The exhibit, which I believe runs through the begining of October, is on Indian influences on Indonesian textiles, but goes well beyond just the usual patola, sembagi types. My favorites were the Bidak Komring from Robert Holmgren's collection.

The NGA has also launched a website on their Indonesian collection, also worth a look. Offhand I don't have the ULR but it's under the NGA in Canberra.

Donna, thanks very much for persevering! The web link is http://www.nga.gov.au/SariToSarong/index.cfm and it looks a fascinating exhibition - I only wish that I was going to be visiting Canberra in the near future. Thanks for reminding us of the National Gallery of Australia which, of course, has so many resources for S E Asian textiles. There are some beautiful photos on the web site for the exhibition.

There is also a catalogue for the exhibition available via the NGA shop (books) http://www.ngashop.com.au/public/home.shtml

For the book collecting obsessives I see that my favourite book on this topic is mentioned: Woven Cargoes: Indian Textiles in the East by
John Guy, Deputy Keeper at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (1998). The book provides a wealth of information and I found it an excellent read from cover to cover.

I have just received the following message via my membership of the Textile Society of Hong Kong and thought that I would share it with you all in case anyone will be in Singapore April through June 2004.

Quote:
"Members who will be visiting Singapore in April may like to visit the National Gallery of Australia's major 2003 exhibition "Sari to Sarong: 500 years of Indian and Indonesian textiles" which will be travelling to Singapore in 2004. It opens on 1 April in the magnificent temporary exhibition gallery of the Asian Civilisations Museum, Empress Place, where it will be on display for three months.

Please contact either Heidi Tan, Juniper Chua or Danny Tan at the Asian Civilisations Museum (http://www.nhb.gov.sg/ACM/acm.shtml) for further details."


The exhibition information at ACM seems to be being updated at the moment so no luck on info. I am posting a link here to the a post on ACM which I made earlier with a follow up after a visit. http://www.tribaltextiles.info/communit ... c.php?t=33

I now have have the hardback edition of the catalogue of this exhibition which I refer to above and there are some very beautiful textiles.
