Exhibition tour during two years in 2023

The second International Textile Art Biennale, organized by Fibre Arts Australia, will be held in Australia in 2023.
The best of contemporary art textiles and a wide range of works related to the textile medium.

Art Textiles is a term derived to express emotions and feelings using a media that has been used since the dawn of time. Traditional and non-traditional techniques being utilised in a contemporary practice, the repeated touch in these works is very gratifying. 
The selected works in this award will push previously held notions of textile/fibre art, opening a dialogue about what it is to be a textile artist that makes an expression and commentary on content and concept in the 21st Century. 
A well resolved concept combined with exploratory and expert use of a chosen material will be paramount for this Biennale. 
From intimate reflections to huge environmental issues, the works will vary in concepts, techniques, material and presentation. There will be a common thread of innovation, experimentation beside professional practice with a focus on contemporary as never before.
The goal of the exhibition is to include innovative work rooted primarily in textile as well as art that explored unexpected relationships between textile and other creative disciplines

Fibre Arts Australia is committed to developing this significant award with it original vision and intentions so that Art Textile practitioners continue to expand, grow and inspire.
