Textiles, Art History, Gardens, and a Little Mental Traveling with Courtney Barnes 2006-2016


Textile Scout™: Hill Tribe Indigo

On view for less than two more months is Out of Southeast Asia, the last exhibition to be organized at The Textile Museum before the institution relocates to its new 46,000-square-foot facility on the George Washington University campus.

I thought of the show when I came across the latest offerings from Roni over at The Loaded Trunk: vintage Hill tribe resist-dyed natural indigo denim pillows. To me, the deep, softly-worn blues also suggest fabrics of the wild American frontier, giving these pieces a real East-Meets-West feel.

Out of Southeast Asia closes October 13. For details on the wrap-up event, From Village and Court to Global Commodity: Southeast Asian Textiles, which will include speakers ranging from  Dr. Ruth Barnes of Yale University Art Galley to Tim Johnson of Jim Thompson, click here.

Wow...always excited when you bring the loaded trunk into the discussion. Thanks. I so wanted to be in DC for this exhibition. Keep on nurturing us.
