I Weave What I Have Seen: The War Rugs of Afganistan
12 February 2022 - 27 March 2022
Gallery 1

I weave what I have seen: The War Rugs of Afghanistan is a testimony to the creativity and resilience of Afghan weavers who have faced the devastating effects of war for more than forty years.

From the very start of the conflict, Afghan weavers began developing a striking new form of war art involving a complex imagery of armaments, maps, monuments, texts and portraits which soon began to find an international audience.

Emerging out of a research project undertaken at the Australian National University by curators Tim Bonyhady and Nigel Lendon, this exhibition investigates the history, iconography, production and distribution of these extraordinary rugs.

This exhibition is toured by the Australian National University Drill Hall Gallery.
