HALI 's 40th

 

HALI Magazine: 40th Anniversary Celibration

London: June 24-28, 2019

HALI London celebrates 40 years and 200 editions of HALI magazine, and is the first London festival devoted to the art and history of textiles. The week offers HALI London ticket holders the chance to look at textiles—symbols of wealth and status that have been traded across continents for centuries—as the key to unravelling complex cultural narratives. The programme includes two full-day symposia, an events series with talks, a film screening and visits to museum archives and private collections and the HALI Fair, also open to the public. A HALI Tour follows HALI London, offering exclusive access to outstanding rugs and textiles in ‘Great British Collections’. https://www.halilondon.co.uk/events
