Cultures at Crossroads : Southeast Asian Textiles from the Australian National Gallery

Cultures at Crossroads : Southeast Asian Textiles from the Australian National Gallery
Grayston, Graham, Editor
Canberra: Australian National Gallery, 1992


This publication, with essays by Michael Brand, Anthony Reid, and Robyn
Maxwell, was written to document an exhibition of Southeast Asian textiles from the
Australian National Gallery. By focusing on broad cultural interactions between
Southeast Asia and the rest of the word as seen in textiles “…we have sought to present
an exhibition that elevates the purely formal beauty of the textiles to a new level of
cultural understanding.” The collection is discussed in chapters on early Southeast Asian
Textiles largely represented by ikats and supplementary warp and weft weavings, the
impact of Indian textiles, Chinese influences, textiles for the new faiths of Islam and
Christianity, and the many design sources of batik.
