Opening today is HALI's annual fair, this year presented virtually. Among the numerous international textile specialists who are participating is Thomas Murray, an independent researcher, collector, lecturer and dealer of Asian and tribal art, with an emphasis on Indonesian sculpture and textiles, as well as animistic art from other cultures. He also features Indian trade cloths from the 14th-18th centuries. As an expert on tribal sculpture and textiles, he has been a Contributing Editor at HALI magazine for 30 years. With more than 50 publications, his recent books, Textiles of Indonesia, Textiles of Japan and Rarities–the Himalayas to Hawaii were met with critical acclaim.

In addition to multiple photos, identification, and elucidating commentary on each of the 22 textiles in Murray's online exhibition is an informative Introductory Video. To view Thomas Murray's display in the HALI fair, click here
