Encounters with Bali: A Collector's Journey. Indonesian Textiles from the Collection of Dr. John Yu AC & Dr. George Soutter AM. This exhibition introduces viewers to Indonesia's rich and diverse textile traditions. The textiles selected for this exhibition reflect the varied ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups inhabiting the Indonesian archipelago. With more than three hundred ethnic groups, Indonesian weavers and other skilled craftspeople employ many of the world's known techniques of textile production including supplementary thread-weaving, pattern and resist dyeing, embroidery, appliqu��, batik and pigment painting. While the textiles displayed in the exhibition are significant in terms of the cultures that produced them, they are also part of a shared passion for collecting and represent a tangible manifestation of the cultural and tourism exchange between Australia and Indonesia.
