Symbol and Colour - Four Centuries of Textile Art
This year's exhibitions of textile art culminate in the gallery's presentation
of a selection of particularly beautiful and outstanding flat weaves and
carpets dating from the 17th to 20th centuries.
A cross-section of cultures covering a period of four centuries allows
the lover of textile art to indulge in the vigour of symbol and colour.
Among the some 30 exhibits illustrating textile art of bygone times you
will find 'Manastir' prayer kilims from the Balkans as well as the Turkoman
A special section of the exhibition with six 20th century rugs is assigned
to "Tülü". These plain sleeping rugs used by the nomads in central
Anatolia have received little attention so far. An extensive exhibition of
more than 40 "Tülü" is planned by the gallery for 17 February -
20 March 2004.
