XI International Biennial of Contemporary Textile Art WTA 2025
The Four Elements

From the 6th to the 29th of March 2025, at Miami International Fine Arts – MIFA, USA.

For this new edition, the prestigious XI International Biennial of Contemporary Textile Art 2025 focuses on the elemental thread of our existence: The Four Elements, which activate us, penetrate us, mold us, give us life and sustenance.

What could have more meaning but our relationship with what makes up this world and that penetrates the fiber of our reality?

Earth Air Fire Water

You are invited to reflect on the elements and pour creativity around the preferred element, through a work of textile art / fiber art.

The XI WTA Biennial will be held in the city of Miami, from March 6 to 29, 2025, at the Miami International Fine Arts – MIFA, and the call will have 3 categories: Large, Small and Three-Dimensional Format.

Participation is by call and prior registration. 120 works in total will be selected by a prestigious international jury (50 in Large Format, 50 in Small Format and 20 in Three-Dimensional Format).

Each artist may apply as many times as they wish in any of the thematic elements they choose, but they may only be selected to participate with a single work per salon. Each salon includes the options of the 4 elements to choose from, but each work must be worked around one of the four elements.

The works will be selected by an outstanding International Jury: Kinor Jiang (Hong Kong), Biret Tavman (Turkey), Ewa Latkowska-Żychska (Poland), Ieva Krūmiņa (Latvia), Susan Taber Avila (United States of America) and Paulina Ortiz Stradtmann (Costa Rica).

XI International Biennial of Contemporary Textile Art WTA 2025, is organized and directed by World Textile Art together with the International CuratorShip team (Yosi Anaya and María Ortega).

Crossing borders and combining disciplines, the artists participating in the XI WTA Biennial start from fibers to merge with new technologies and venture into various lines of research, hybridizing searches and questioning categories, but maintaining textiles as an integrative concept.
