Our aim is to strengthen the transition between the fine arts and applied arts’ genres so there is not any restrictions on materials and techniques used. The rules allow artworks referring to the attributes of the textile material either in their techniques or expressing thoughts by means of this material. Our foundation’s work is supported by experts of international contemporary artists and art historians.
