XXIV International Contemporary Art Textile Exhibition dedicated to Maria Lai
The small yet incredible creations of Miniartextil return this year in collaboration with the Associazione Arte&Arte of Como, which organises this show – which is unique in Europe – by selecting the finest international artistic production in the field of Textile Art or Fibre Art.
Gea, the Great Mother, is the theme that has inspired the artists from 22 nations. The Earth is analysed from every point of view while recalling the deep ties linking living beings and the planet, thanks also to the succession of seasons.
On show are 54 “mini-textiles” made by revolutionised schema and materials, selected by a commission chaired by Luciano Caramel.
Besides Palazzo Mocenigo, this year, MINIARTEXTIL will take place in two other important venetian museums: at the Museo del Vetro di Murano (Murano Glass Museum) and at the Museo del Merletto di Burano (Lace Museum) will be respectively on display A woods, by the Japanese artist Machiko Agano and Storia Universale (1982) by Maria Lai, a tribute to the Italian artist who have been a key figure for the international textile art and a sophisticated interpreter of a feminine artistic world, died in 2013.
Opening hours: from April 1st to October 31st
10 am – 5 pm (ticket office 10 am – 4.30 pm)
Admission is allowed with time and tickets of the museum: www.mocenigo.visitmuve.it
