HAMILL TRIBAL TEXTILES
More of an installation than an exhibition, A Walk Through the Kuba Forest invites gallery visitors to spend a few minutes in a magical world of repetition and rhythm, a world of striking pattern and vivid color. The show was curated by Piper O'Sullivan whose ongoing study of the thousands of textiles in our collection has resulted in two academic papers, one on Egungun costumes and another on the Kuba skirts, some of which she assembled for this exhibit.
Thanks also to Piper, these Kuba skirts will form the first group of textiles presented on our new website, Hamill Tribal Textiles, which we hope to have online in the coming weeks.
For those who cannot visit the gallery for a walk through our Kuba Forest, we hope you enjoy the images below.
