Here is the first press text for the new Miniartextil exhibition, one of the most consistent open textile art competition there currently is in Europe. Newcomers do have a chance here as the jury is open-minded and international in scope. But competition is hard as there are many applications, so send your very best works! This year there is a small fee for taking part, it has always been a miracle to me how they could have worked without entry fees in the past as this event is organized by a small private association.
Arte&Arte associaiton is launching the new contest for the 26th edition of MINIARTEXTIL, having for theme TO WEAVE DREAMS.
Aplications must be submitted within Saturday April 16 2016.
We would like to drive artists’ attention to the manual skills of creating fiber artworks. Everybody is invited to realise a dream, to make a wish, to weave hopes. A way to look backward, beyond the looms in order to get fascinated by the contemporary.
The 54 selected works will be exhibited in Como in the ex Church of san Francesco from October 1 to November 20 2016, than the show will be displayed in Montrouge, Paris and Venice.
