Como, 8 March 2022
From 8 March to 31 May 2022, MINIARTEXTIL Call for Artists is open to selecting mini-textiles. These small-scale works for three decades have been the hallmark of the contemporary textile art exhibition to be held from 15 October 2022 to 8 January 2023 in the premises of the eighteenth-century Villa Olmo in Como and entitled Rosa Alchemico.
The call – promoted by ARTE & ART Cultural Association and Fondazione Bortolaso-Totaro-Sponga – is open to artists, designers, teachers and art students proposing works made with textile techniques and/or materials. The exhibition aims to promote and disseminate textile art as a contemporary means of expression, highlighting the medium’s techniques and methods.
The work must have the following features: original work, handmade or where the technique is controlled by the artist, executed with textile materials or techniques; it can be two or three-dimensional. The dimensions of the work must categorically not exceed 20x20x20 centimetres.
Considering the dramatic situation that the neighbouring country Ukraine is going through, a country that has been present many times at Miniartextil with its artists, the required participation fee to participate in the call for entries is set for the 2022 edition at euro 35,00. Part of the proceeds will be donated to Caritas Italiana, which has started a fundraising campaign to support primary humanitarian and emergency assistance in Ukraine.
