The European Tapestry Forum (ETF) was set up 2001 by tapestry weavers for tapestry weavers. The organization seeks to encourage the continuing development of the art of tapestry weaving in Europe. Therefore a traveling exhibition is organized every three years which is travels through several European countries. The purpose of the ARTAPESTRY exhibitions is to give tapestry weavers the opportunity to show their works to a larger European and international audience.
Despite the difficult framework conditions with which the orzaniszers were confronted by the pandemic, the 6th Arttapestry is able to be held. The jury members Andrea Milde (Tapestry artist, Berlin, Germany), Pawel Kiełpinski (Artist, professor at the University of the Arts, Poznan, Poland) and Leena Svinhufvud (Art Historian, docent and curator at Finish Design Museum, Helsinki, Finland) came together in a two-day virtual meeting and finally selected 43 top-class works of 40 artists from 16 countries. The exhibition was divided into 6 subject areas by the art historian Nina Habolth: Visions of Nature, Ornament and Symbolism, Photo Realism, Dynamics of Space, Picturesque Poetry and Drama. The British Professor of Textile Culture Lesley Millarwrote the text for the catalog.
The opening of the exhibition should actually have taken place on January 15th in Denmark and has now been postponed to the end of February.
