HALI magazine is an international quarterly publication focused on collectible rugs, carpets and textiles, widely recognised as an authoritative reference guide and quality art publication.
The HALI Fair is the hub of the HALI London 40th anniversary celebrations and 200 editions of HALI magazine, and is the first London festival devoted to the art and history of textiles. This will be the tenth edition of the HALI Fair, which ran annually at Olympia, 1998-2006. The week offers HALI London ticket holders the chance to look at textiles 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’.
The HALI Fair is open to the public and free to attend. At the opening (27 June, 5-9pm), a free copy of HALI 200 will be available for all visitors.
