Two years past the first exhibition organized by Officina d’Arte&Tessuti in Spoleto, this year it’s the time of Spoleto Fiberart.II – Contaminazioni from 30 June to 31 July.
The exhibition is curated by Maria Giuseppina Caldarola, will be split between the Museo del Costume e del Tessuto and the exhibiting spaces in Via Plinio il Giovane. A single material is the object of the exhibition, the fiber, represented in a huge number of shapes and uses, hence the title Contaminazioni.
Prominent artists, including Lydia Predominato and Anna Moro Lin, will be joined by young artists. This is the result of the collaboration with DARS Udine, an association that promotes and organizes the biennial Libro d’artista exposition, that will present a selection from the 2016 edition. In particular, it will be possible to examine the works of professors and students of the Bologna and Barcelona Academies of Fine Arts, of the Art School of Udine and Cortina d’Ampezzo, and of the Venice International Graphics School. Students and professors of Paper Technology at the Rome and Milan Academies of Fine Arts were also invited, as well as those from the Weaving and Tapestries Sections of the Rome Ornamental Arts School.
