Conference “The power of fibers: Textiles and women artists” by Virginie Mamet
How did women artist reclaim ownership of textile arts, historically rooted, in numerous assignments? From Arts & Crafts to Bauhaus, to Fiber Art, to performative and relational practices, textile arts come to life in all their characteristic richness. Transgression, monumentality, flexibility, mobility, connections… all are possible approaches. The conference will be followed by a dialogue with a contemporary textile artist and a Q&A session with the audience.
