I began to take an interest with the Fiber Art artistic current, about 30 years ago on the occasion of the first edition of ‘ Textilia ‘.
Since then I’ve been following the evolution of the movement, I visited its exhibitions in Italy and in Europe, I have personally known its artists wherewith I have established good long-term friendships. I have published articles,
presentations, brochures and I have been a member of juries.
The Fiber Art is a contemporary art’s tendency which brings together the researches based on textiles production methods and/or on textile materials, interpreted in their physical or conceptual representations through: weaving, panels, sculptures, immersive installations, photo-collages, videos, projections and performance. Today – that Internet revolution changed the society, the languages and the ways of designing – even the Fiber Art opens up to new experiments.
