Beyond: Tapestry Expanded seeks work from artists that explore the expansive properties of tapestry. Using the definition of tapestry as a nonfunctional, handwoven pictorial structure, artists are invited to submit work that explores and pushes this definition.
Artists who are combining both hand and digital processes, using non-traditional materials, creating three-dimensional forms, or are incorporating multi-media components, including sound, video, performance are highly encouraged to submit work.
Artists from any location may apply. Please note that artists are responsible for shipping their work to and from the exhibition venue. Members of the American Tapestry Alliance receive a discount for entry, but membership is not required to enter.
Using the definition of tapestry as a nonfunctional, handwoven pictorial structure, artists are invited to submit work that explores and pushes this definition as well as demonstrating a strong understanding of woven structures and tapestry techniques. Work incorporating multi-media, including sound, video, performance is highly welcome. Examples include work constructed on a TC2 loom; work woven in the round, or dimensionally and/or off the grid; work utilizing non-traditional materials such as sisal, recycled materials, fiber optic or responsive materials, and interactive or experiential approaches that may include installation, sound, and/or video, etc.
While there is no size restriction, artists whose practice includes installation-oriented work and are flexible in exhibiting at a reduced scale are more likely to be selected.
Please note that commissioned work designed but not executed by the artist (such as woven work produced on industrial looms that have not been altered, manipulated, etc. by the artist’s hand), is not eligible for inclusion.
Work must be completed within the last three years.
Several monetary awards will be given to artists demonstrating expansive conceptual and technical approaches in tapestry. Additional details will be announced in the spring of 2024. Awards will be announced in September of 2024.
