2016 Hangzhou Fi­bre Art Ex­hi­bi­tion

That's China - - Events -

Fi­bre art refers to fine art whose ma­te­rial con­sists of nat­u­ral or syn­thetic fi­bre and other com­po­nents, such as fab­ric or yarn. Mod­ern fi­bre art takes its con­text from the tex­tile arts, which have been prac­ticed glob­ally for a mil­len­nia. Fi­bre artists face the same dilemma that all artists wres­tle with; "what is art?" This ques­tion is par­tic­u­larly prom­i­nent in the fi­bre arts world - and with other me­dia associated with hand­i­crafts -as they have long been associated with do­mes­tic or util­i­tar­ian pro­duc­tion. The ex­hi­bi­tion also in­cludes an in­ter­na­tional fo­rum ti­tled Tex­tile Think­ing, which will draw par­tic­i­pa­tion from renowned schol­ars from the world over.
