10th Biennale and the 1st Embroidery Biennale in China

The 10th International Fiber Art Biennale exhibition was open 15.10.-15.11.2018 in 3 venues in China: Tsinghua University Art Museum, The Gallery of Academy of Arts & Design, Tsinghua University and Beijing A.C. Art Museum.

From 43 countries 179 foreign artists applied to Biennale with 321 art works. The list of 78 selected artists and the honorary artists is placed to chinafiberartforum.com website. In addition to international participants there were 88 artists from China. I was the only participant from Finland with my piece Blue Light 2 (2018).

Beatrijs Sterk wrote a good article about the exhibition in the Textile Forum Blog 22.1.2018 and a video is publiced in YouTube.

After the Biennal my work was included to Chaozhou International Embroidery Art Biennale, in South China’s Guangdong province, at 20. Dec 2018 until 5. Jan 2019.
Here’s some background information about the event on China Textile web site.

In China and some other countries the exhibition organizers provide also a certificate for the participant. Some time ago I felt it was unnesessary but not anymore. It’s actually good to have precise information about the exhibition and indisputable proof of your participation. Thanks to Prof. Lin and Prof. Li for providing certificates from these two exhibitions.
