Carpets, textiles and Tribal art

Hali FairAs the natural companion to textile arts, tribal art officially became part of The HALI Fair three years ago and is now an exciting section of this event staged in London from  8 to 18 June 2006. The role of tribal art in moulding the modern aesthetic cannot be overestimated. The discovery of African and Oceanic figural sculptures, masks and artefacts was nothing less than a revelation to a whole generation of artists, among them Picasso, Matisse, Gauguin and Derain and was a major field for collectors including Helena Rubenstein and David Sylvester.

Today interest in tribal art is growing rapidly on both sides of the Atlantic and the group of specialist dealers will present not only figural sculpture but also artefacts including masks, shields, furniture, ceremonial adornments and baskets from Africa, the Oceanic cultures and the Americas. All these objects were created in response to the authentic cultural needs of the tribe, before outside influence and commercial demand led to a loss of focus and integrity. 

Dealers who participated last year in this section of the Fair include Owen Hargreaves (London), Clive Loveless (London), Susana Montiel Colmenares (London), Persiska Huset (Sweden), Primitive Gangl (Austria), TANA - Galerie Sachau (Germany), Tribal Gathering (London) and Tribal Hunter (London). Works for sale at the 2006 Fair included:

london fair Malawi mask - a small wooden dance mask, early 20th century, Nyassa tribe, Malawi, height: 6 ins (Tribal Gathering London, UK)

Gurage chair - a Gurage chair, Ethiopia, early 20th century (Owen Hargreaves Tribal Art, UK)

Paracas Peru -London fair - an ancient Peruvian segment of mantle, printed with repeat designs representing jellyfish or a typical Peruvian hand motif, dating from between 173 BC to 54 AD (Clive Loveless, UK).

You will also see an early, rare and important Aboriginal ovoid shield from the Murray River area, c. 1800, with incised abstract decoration (Clive Loveless, UK)

The textile arts of Africa, and in particular West Africa, have enjoyed a higher profile since the Royal Academy landmark exhibition Africa: the Art of a Continent. Visitors to The HALI Fair can expect to see ewe, asanti and kente cloths/wraps from Ghana with their distinctive narrow-strip weaving in colourful geometric patterns, and indigo-dyed textiles from Mali, Côte d’Ivoire and Cameroon.

Whether it be early 20th century boomerangs from the central Australian desert, a rare konso funerary post from Ethiopia or even 5th century aksumite ceramic figures, visitors will be intrigued and amused by the extraordinary works offered for sale at The HALI Fair.

 

THE HALI FAIR: CARPETS, TEXTILES AND TRIBAL ART
Two Thousand Years of Textile Art

The eighth annual HALI Fair, the leading international event in the fields of carpets, textiles and tribal art, takes place from Thursday 9 to Sunday 19 June 2005 at the National Hall of the Olympia Exhibition Centre, Hammersmith Road, London W14. Some 80 dealers from around the globe will exhibit a cornucopia of fine textiles, carpets, rugs, embroideries, exotic costumes, kilims, tapestries, Islamic and tribal artefacts. Spanning 2,000 years and four continents, the works offered for sale will demonstrate the beauty, joyous colour and artistic sophistication of woven art. Prices will range from £250 to over £500,000.

The 2005 Fair features three newly-created zones dedicated to:

Traditional –textiles and carpets that represent the full range of cultures, types and styles, from classical weavings made for the great Islamic and European courts through fine antique to mid-C20th decorative textiles to a plethora of affordable village, tribal and nomad rugs, costumes and textiles from all Continents

Design – offering some of the most important original contemporary carpets and tribal designs from around the world.

Tribal and Primitive Art – a large section, first introduced in 2003, that has proved extremely popular with visitors and successful for exhibitors. This is a growing collectors’ field as well as an important new decorative element for interior decorators and international designers.

Tribal art dealers will include:

Tribal Hunter (UK), Tribal Gathering London (UK), TANA Galerie Sachau (Germany), Primitive Gangl (Austria), Persiska Huset (Sweden), Clive Loveless (UK), Lotus Gallery (Texas, USA), Owen Hargreaves (UK).

Leading dealers from twelve countries, in addition to the UK, will participate coming from as far afield as Hong Kong, New Zealand, the USA and Turkey as well as eight European countries. Among them will be Francesca Galloway, London (Textiles, Haute Couture and Indian miniatures), Tribal Gathering, London, (African tribal art predominately from the Great Lakes region), Gebhart Blazek, Vienna (Moroccan carpets and textiles), David Sorgato, Milan (antique and decorative carpets) and Textile-Art/Michael Franses, London (early Central Asian and Chinese textiles to 19th century Suzani embroideries). No other fair in the world offers visitors such an exotic atmosphere in which to find not only the rarest carpets, textiles or tapestries but also affordable, and even wearable, pieces of colourful art of the past and present. 

As at previous HALI Fairs, a knowledgeable and experienced Vetting Committee will ensure that visitors can buy with confidence, knowing that each piece has been assessed for authenticity, origin, age and quality.

The Fair will take place in a new prime location on the ground floor of the National Hall of Olympia with its own main entrance from Hammersmith Road. It will again be linked to and coincide with the Summer Fine Art & Antiques Fair and the Antiquarian Book Fair, making Olympia an essential destination for collectors in June.

The HALI Fair is jointly organised by Clarion Events and HALI Publications and in seven years has established an unrivalled international reputation with collectors and textile art enthusiasts. Sebastian Ghandchi, Publisher of HALI, believes that “The HALI Fair 2005 promises to be the most diverse and enthralling international carpet, textile and tribal art extravaganza yet”. 

The HALI Fair takes its name from the international bi-monthly magazine which has a respected reputation for its broad-ranging editorial coverage on the world’s textile heritage. HALI magazine also reports on international exhibitions, fairs and conferences, book reviews, analysis of carpets and textiles sold at auction, the best of modern production, Islamic art features and market information.
