China and USA Technology and Innovation in Fiber Art
23.11. – 24.12.2020
Since 1960, Fiber Art has brought the presence of many astonishing artists and art projects to the contemporary art scene. The field has had incredible attention with unlimited material explorations, historical and inventive techniques, intimate and public site installations, and a wide arrangement of personal, cultural, and social journeys in the making. It seems the textile field has continuously evolved in the contemporary art scene, as well as design and industry over fifty years, and most recently with digital technology and science.
The 2020 China and USA Technology and Innovation in Fiber Art exhibition presents contemporary Fiber Artists who have demonstrated their research and investigation in innovative approaches in textile methodology, materiality, and technology. Twenty artists from China and twenty artists from the United States manifest a variety of approaches in their art making, and often the state of concurrent artistic and cultural interest through the rich contemporary textile art format. I hope this exhibition will allow Fiber Artists, viewers, audience, and supporters to reexamine where this field is at now, and will be an inspiration for the future generation of textile artists.
The 2020 China and USA Technology and Innovation in Fibre Art Exhibtion has been jointly planned and organized by the Academy of Fine Arts of Tsinghua University, Beijing and the University of the Arts, Philadelphia.
