The Biennial initiated a two-stage selection panel which offered new possibilities for considering emerging tendencies.
The first meeting in January 2007 outlined how the selection panel would work and two dates were set for stage one, at the beginning of June and stage two and the end of June.  The first panel included, Janis Jefferies (CV- Professor of Visual Arts, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK), Gerard Williams and Danica Maier, both artists from the UK who had individually exhibited in Kaunas 05 and who are responsible for one  (Unpicked and Dismantled) of the 3 curated exhibitions that TEXTILE 07 will host. The first panel received 328 applications and 64 works were short-listed.  The panel’s conversation and decision making process was recorded and will form part of a longer essay to accompany the final selected  works which the second panel reduced to 34 works. The second panel was chaired by Janis Jefferies (to provide continuity from the first panel), Jay Koh (CV- artist, writer, activist and curator of Textile 09, Germany/Singapore) and Linara Dovydaityte (CV- art historian and curator, Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius, LT).
