The event aims, as in its previous editions, to offer artists an opportunity to exhibit their artworks, without the inherent hierarchy implied by any prize award.
For its 6th edition, Textile Art International Triennial TexpoART proposes the concept of “NEW REALITIES” as theme of artistic debate.
We are going through difficult times, full of uncertainties, with a social insecurity in which we have all asked ourselves existential questions, maybe the time has come for the world to gather again and to move on. There were lessons learned about trust, about the importance of the scale of values, about personal and social priorities? These surprising, almost post-apocalyptic horizons, marked by pandemics, the economic crisis, the armament races, and the horrors of war, also require the restructuring of artistic vocabulary, in a situation where, everywhere, the funds allocated to art and culture are always smaller. Moreover, the reevaluation of adaptation to new conditions is necessary, seen as an act of intelligence for survival.
This edition of the Textile Art International Triennial TexpoART has the main theme the NEW REALITIES, as a new attitude towards the current situation, regardless of its meaning. Transposed into textile art, creative adaptation efforts involve unconventional approaches or exceeding the limits of traditionalism, either as a technique or as a system of compositional organization, capturing the dynamics and transformations of the contemporary world in the artistic adventure of creation. We do not know where today's society or art is going on, but the hope remains in positive metamorphoses and spectacular evolutions, specific to the human spirit, overcoming the obstacles inherent in any progress.
TexpoART 2023 - NEW REALITIESis open to professionals and master students in the field of Textile Arts with art works of medium size, made in the last 3 years.
