Portuguese Textile and Contemporary Art Exhibition

REWIND: Portuguese Textile and Contemporary Art Exhibition

Portugal has a long tradition in Textiles, booth in craft and industry. In the last decades has been restructuring its industrial textile sector, by interconnecting industry hand-made crafts and design. Due to its constant use and because textiles have been understood merely as a “product to wear” often we look at textiles without a critical and aesthetic perspective.

In this context, Kaunas Biennial TEXTILE could be a forum for debate between artists, designers and the public, and could create an opportunity for the effective renewal of the concept of “textile” opening…

WOMEN IN THEIR FIFTIES. PYTHIAS

Oeuvre of Laima Oržekauskienė unfolds through giving carefully considered sense to ritual and attention to origins and traditions of the phenomenon which enables deeper knowledge. The artist interprets a ritual as well as implements it. She identifies herself with the ritual as she weaves millimetre by millimetre. In solitude. Week after week. Every single detail of the image she weaves is meaningful – motif, pattern, technique, material. In her artwork the artist employs rich heritage of global culture and seeks for codes that affirm feminine entity or invents them…

THE TOMS PAULI FOUNDATION AND THE LEGACY OF THE INTERNATIONAL TAPESTRY BIENNALS HELD IN LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND, 1962-1995

For over thirty years the International Tapestry Biennials were held in the city of Lausanne, making it the world capital of contemporary textile art. The event had come into being thanks to the encounter of Pierre Pauli (1916-1970), the then director of the Decorative Arts Museum in Lausanne, with Jean Lurçat, the French painter and tapestry designer, who had instigated the revival of French tapestry after World War II. In 1959, Pierre Pauli mooted the idea of giving modern tapestry…

LOUISE LEMIEUX BERUBE

Canada

LOUISE LEMIEUX BÉRUBÉ, born in Canada in 1943, graduated in Art History from the University of Quebec in Montreal. Together with Régine Mainberger, she founded the Montréal Centre of Contemporary Textiles in 1990. “Having a great passion for weaving, I managed to convince the bureaucrats that this technique is part of our collective history, at least for the women of Quebec”. Thus the “Textile Construction” programme was set up, embracing new technologies in knitting and weaving from the outset. The jacquard course brought the students in touch with industry. In 1997 Louise Bérubé began…

REWIND-PLAY-FORWARD: COSTA RICA’S MAGICAL MEMORY

COSTA RICAN TEXTILE CREATOR

 

Aesthetic practices focusing on textiles, indistinctly functioning as traditional warp and weft visual structure or a mix of alternative of basic raw fibre materials, have developed strategies to make up expressive languages that diversify the possibilities of their perception within everyday art. These languages empower and distinguish ideas, maximize speeches and establish innovative visual forms that link and mix traditional forms of textile practices and also provide experimentation, using the fibre as an innovative element.…
