International Art Textile Biennale 2023celebrates the vibrant and evolving world of contemporary art textiles. In its second edition, this Biennale showcases a diverse array of works that push the boundaries of textile art.
The 35 finalists from 11 countries dismantle preconceived notions on what it means to be a textile artist and how this medium can express profound commentary. Diverse perspectives unfold in each piece, challenging inherited canons and questioning concepts such as body and beauty, isolation and community.
