My thanks to Ann Goodman from whom I received the following email about the exhibition 'East of the Wallace Line: Monumental Art from Indonesia and New Guinea' at the Yale University Art Gallery in New Haven, Connecticut, USA:
Dear Pamela,

Does the Forum know about the new show of textiles and sculpture at the Yale Art Gallery, "East of the Wallace Line" curated by Ruth Barnes ( ... new-guinea )? I haven't seen the show yet but the reviews on the Web are very positive and informative.

Best to all,

Although the first images seen on the web link do not include textiles, if you click the 'view more' button under the row of thumbnail images you will go to web page where, gradually, what seems like images of all the exhibition exhibits are shown. This includes some textiles. Clicking on an individual thumbnail image leads to information on the exhibit and larger size images. Extremely well done and means that, even if you cannot get to the exhibition, you can still learn and enjoy from the on-line show. I wonder if they will leave this accessible as 'past exhibitions' after the real (rather than virtual) exhibition closes?

More details on the exhibition:
East of the Wallace Line: Monumental Art from Indonesia and New Guinea
Friday, August 15, 2014–Sunday, February 1, 2015

East of the Wallace Line: Monumental Art from Indonesia and New Guinea explores the cultural characteristics of eastern Indonesia and coastal western New Guinea. Taking as its jumping-off point the “Wallace Line,” an ecological demarcation first recognized by British naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace that runs through Indonesia between Bali and Lombok and west of Sulawesi, the exhibition presents intricately decorated, large-scale sculptures and textiles, as well as more intimate personal and domestic objects. With more than 120 works from the 17th to 19th century, the exhibition features highlights from the Gallery’s permanent collection and select loans, many either too large or too fragile to be regularly displayed.
Exhibition organized by Ruth Barnes, the Thomas Jaffe Curator of Indo-Pacific Art, Yale University Art Gallery. Made possible by an endowment created with a challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

File comment: Threshold (detail), Ngada, Indonesia, Flores, 19th century. Wood. Promised gift of Thomas Jaffe, B.A. 1971
