Italiano (Italian)

MINIARTEXTIL is an annual review of contemporary art, which offers the best international artistic production in the field of Textile Art or Fiber Art, that sector of contemporary art that incorporates ancient textile notions revolutionizing, however, patterns and materials.

Born in Como in 1991 MINIARTEXTIL over the years has been able to grow beyond national borders and become a protagonist in several Italian and foreign cities.
From over ten years, the exhibition has also been hosted in France in Montrouge-Paris, in Venice, and is expanding its horizons in Spain, Germany and the United States.

Very interesting, especially in the meaning described by the rules, summarized in this way: “the sudden opening of a window, through which one can face a different perspective. What happened? A miracle: out of nowhere, the possibility of everything. “It is worth exploring the concept by reading the Announcement.

Emanuela D'Amico

English version Mi sono avvicinata al quilting nel 1992, da allora ho frequentato diversi corsi in Italia e negli USA per approfondire le tecniche del patchwork, passando dai disegni tradizionali o geometrici alle tecniche artistiche con cui posso esprimere la mia creatività. Insegno le tecniche base e avanzate dal 1998. Ho fondato la Scuola Romana Quilting nel 2015: e dal 2014 organizzo a Roma la mostra di ArtQuilting: ArteMorbida. A partire dal 2018, con la collaborazione di Maria Rosaria Roseo e altre colleghe/amiche abbiamo iniziato la pubblicazione di ArteMorbida Textile Arts Magazine. Oggi ArteMorbida è anche, finalmente, una rivista cartacea. Parola d’ordine: Divulgazione!
