83 artists from every corner of the world present their works at the 6th year of Textile Art of Today
Attractive chamber works, provocative installations featuring pressing themes, interactive concepts which pose questions about the position of humanity in the contemporary world and its place in the future. For a long time now, textile has been about much more than just decorative “rugs”; it is a topical medium with a confident artistic mission. The 6th year of the international project entitled Textile Art of Today, which opened on September 3, 2021 at the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum in Bratislava-Čunovo, also convinces us of that. The exposition will later be installed in galleries and museums in Budapest, Poprad, Bielsko-Biala and Uherské Hradište, thus, connecting the Visegrad Four countries as well as five continents. 312 artists entered the triennial, while 40 gifted young artists submitted their works in the students’ section. After carefully assessing each work, the Commission selected the works of 83 artists from five continents; 17 of these works were assigned to the students’ section.
Enviro Award and Invited Personalities
Since the environment is this year’s leitmotiv, the Enviro Award, for which 31 of the exhibiting artists will compete, will be awarded for the first time at the Textile Art of Today.
Invitations to participate in this international event were also accepted by significant personalities of the contemporary art scene, such as Kari Anne Helleberg Bahri (Norway), Eszter Bornemisz (Hungary), Włodzimierz Cygan (Poland) and Olafur Eliasson (Denmark). Their participation confirms the influential international status of this event. The accompanying exposition at the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum features tapestries created by Božena Augustínová-Rochovanská (1939 – 2005). The Grand Prix of Božena Augustínová is awarded at this festival as a tribute to her artistic legacy in textile.
