Enriching the Arts

Notes about the exhibition:

‘The genesis for Hanging by a Thread arose when Ilse Anysas Salkauskas and Barbara J. West were studying the Marie Erickson Rug Collection (Middle Eastern) at the Nickle Arts Museum. There they discovered that during the wars in Afghanistan, Afghani women had been unable to acquire the wool to make rugs and carpets in traditional patterns. Women had been passing patterns orally from generation to generation, but without the material to make them, the oral tradition began to disappear along with women’s cultural value. This inspired the pair to look at our culture and consider the transmission of information and learning among current generations of Canadian women.’
