Are you wondering about the difference between ARTEMORBIDA Online and ARTEMORBIDA quarterly magazine, digital or printed?

Here are the answers to all your questions!

ArteMorbida, with its rich thematic offer focusing on contemporary as well as modern and ancient art history, is the ultimate magazine for fibre art and textile art lovers. Daily, the magazine contributes to promoting and disseminating this artistic language and leads enthusiasts, collectors and professionals to discover the relevant key players, artworks, trends and spaces.

A reality in constant and exponential growth, ArteMorbida has seen an increase in collaborations and international media partnerships qualifying it as the focal point of a network of information and active participation within the field.

Under the ArteMorbida umbrella, you can find two publications with different characteristics; discover them here!

The quarterly periodical, digital and print magazine – in its Italian or English version, with in-depth analysis and thematic focus – documents the status quo and evolution of textile art, bidding to become an exhaustive and comprehensive testimony worth collecting.

Each issue gathers insights, essays and texts by selected authors, chosen for their proven knowledge in specific areas of textile art. In each new issue, we focus on a different topic to which at least a quarter of the articles selected for publication is related. For example, our latest and seventh issue focuses on the theme of contemporary tapestry.

In the magazine’s 80 pages, readers can discover this technique’s many facets and evolutions translated into the language of internationally renowned artists. Sheila Pepe, through her interweaving, conveys a feminist perspective and encourages cultural openings aimed at overcoming gender stereotypes, Mimmo Totaro designs and creates elegant and poetic thread geometries in space, Hoda Tawakol expresses herself with organic forms generous and alive with colour, and Goshka Macuga crafts dystopian tapestries for an exhibition at the Fondazione Prada.

Those of you with a keen interest in history will not be disappointed either; each issue features an in-depth focus on art history. This time, our expert Elisa Monfasani leads us to discover the fascinating Marsala Flemish tapestries’ restoration process.

Through carefully choosing subjects and contributors, the periodic quarterly magazine, in digital and print versions, is a precious object and a small artwork in itself. Carefully crafted to the smallest detail, with eye-catching graphics and extremely high-quality images, it is a delight for the mind and senses.

To give you an idea of the relevance of ArtemMorbida online as a crucial tool for textile art professionals, here is the story of Camilla Cesarini and Contextile. In September 2021, we published the call for entries with all the information and links needed to participate in Contextile 2022. In the meantime, our team carried on its thorough research and documentation work into textile art, scouting the young Camilla Cesarini (aka Armadilly). You can find Barbara Pavan’s exciting interview with the artist at this link:

Thanks to ArteMorbida, Armadilly learnt about Contextile open call and submitted her pop tapestries to the jury. So, in our May 2022 news article dedicated to the competition’s winners, it was with immense pleasure that we listed her name among the other shortlisted artists

Armadilly’s artistic journey has not stopped, and we wrote about its developments

Our relationship with Contextile developed further, and we became its media partner.

This is just one of many success stories and an example of effective networking powered by our online publication.

English version Dal 2010 mi occupo di arte contemporanea realizzando progetti fra scultura tessile, arte ambientale e social practices. Negli ultimi anni il mio lavoro mi ha portato a vivere viaggiando con progetti e residenze artistiche nel mondo. Esploro processi di generazione e trasformazione della materia, applicando diversi livelli di controllo e indagando i limiti tra autorialità e partecipazione.Talvolta il materiale prende il sopravvento, altre volte sono i partecipanti di un progetto o l’ambiente stesso a farlo, risultando in un dinamico e continuo scambio. Il fare manuale è per me un processo d’interrogazione dell’ambiente e uno strumento per entrare in contatto con nuove persone e culture. Nei miei progetti applico una commistione di tecniche differenti prese dalla scultura, dall’artigianato, dal disegno e dall’ estetica relazionale. Ricerco e utilizzo tecniche antiche: tessitura a telaio, arazzo, crochet, feltro, ricamo, annodature e carta fatta a mano. Nelle mie installazioni, che si sviluppano su larga scala, unisco metodi di lavorazione lenta a nuove tecnologie. Tutto ciò che riguarda il tessile è sempre stato estremamente affascinante per me. Mi piace imparare e condividere idee e conoscenze sul vasto mondo delle fibre ed e’ quello che ho fatto durante i miei viaggi di ricerca tra Europa, Asia, USA e Africa.
