Ikat textiles exhibition in Hong Kong

Hong Kong University Museum and Art Gallery holds an ongoing exhibition of Indonesian ikat textiles from the Peter ten Hoopen collection. The exhibition is titled ‘Fibres of Life’. The exhibition opened 15 September 2017 and will run through 26 November 2017

The occasion is celebrated by the publication of Ikat Textiles of the Indonesian Archipelago, a consolidated reference work on the subject, with around 450 pages, 100 in-text illustrations including both contemporary and historic field photography. The book covers several ikat weaving areas that not so far have been discussed in the literature.

‘A panel of ten region-specific experts helped me to enrich Ikat Textiles of the Indonesian Archipelago with information only they could have provided, and several fellow-collectors and photographers provided rare materials. Now at the end it feels almost like a communal project’ said Peter ten Hoopen to Jozan Magazine.
