Join us at The Textile Museum and meet artists and writers in inspiring talks and performances!
Register here to participate: bit.ly/textileartconference
Please note that the last day for registration is September 7!
The theme of the conference is how textile materials and textile methods are used to describe events in our time.
What is it that makes the textile medium so suitable for artistic exploration, discussion and description of cultural, social and political time? How is this reflected in the artists’ own practices? The conference discusses themes in the ongoing exhibition Berättelser om / Stories About: http://textilmuseet.se/en/textilmuseet/engutstallningararkiv/storiesabout.5.76dbcb116994dc76ba2bfb.html
The conference costs SEK 200 (including coffee), 100 SEK for students, and payment is made on site.
The program will include artist talks, performance and a special guiding in the exhibition by the curator Inger Bergström.
