Textile Art Symposium
An inspiring afternoon was spent on the 4th of April in the service of textile art. Hosted by Svenska Vävakademin in collaboration with Konstfack Textile, a pop-up exhibition was created at Konstfack featuring Ulla Parkdal, Josefin Gäfvert, Petter Hellsing, Miriam Parkman, Linnea Blomgren and many, many more. Talks were given by Helena Hernmarck, Ingeborg Skaar, Lennart Nilsson to name just a few, covering many interesting topics like how to succeed for over 50 years as an international textile artist focused on monumental works, to how to conserve and maintain public textile art to the importance of textiles in acoustically sound environments. The panel discussion at the end of the afternoon was held by Fiberspace’s director, Marcia Harvey Isaksson. For a more detailed description, read more here.
