Textile Art meets Architecture in Copenhagen in March 2014

The Nordic Textile Art Meeting approaches! Here is the press release of it, published by NTA on 8. March, 2014:

Nordic Textile Meeting in Copenhagen14-16.3 2014

NTA Nordic Textile Art is the host of a Nordic Textile Meeting in Copenhagen. The meeting takes place in Gammel Dok – the site of Danish Art Workshops and Danish Architecture Centre.

During three days more than sixty delegates from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden will meet for net-working, discussions and lectures focusing on the interaction between textile art and architecture. In the city of Copenhagen they will visit the Royal Opera House, (Operaen) and the Royal Danish Playhouse, (Skuespillhuset) among other well-known buildings.

Danish textile artists and designers Julie Henriksen and Mathilde Aggebo will lecture on their collaboration working with two projects – the stage curtain of the Black Diamond and the interior decoration of the Tietgen Student´s Residence. The participants of the meeting will take part in an excursion to the two buildings.

Vibeke Lindhart relates to a thousand years old connection between architecture and textiles in the Church when she lectures on the subject of Bishop´s copes of Denmark. Recently she published a book ”Se min kåbe”.

On Sunday – the last day of the meeting – the textile artists will visit the Blue Planet – for an inspirational workshop.

NTA Nordic Textile Art, founded in 2007, is an organisation working to enable encounters, creating networks for textile artists and for those interested in textile art. Since the 2012 meeting in Reykjavik, a yearly meeting takes place in a Nordic country. In 2015 the meeting is planned to be held in Finland.
