The TXT organization invites all textile artists and art students to submit works to juried small format competitive exhibition with the topic CELEBRATION.

CELEBRATION looks back at 20 years of exhibitions of textile miniature in Bratislava.
The topic is a retrospective, a review of what our previous exhibitions offered us, how things were created, what we learned and what surprised us.
We are also interested in critical appreciation, new ideas and suggestions.
We’re not only celebrating our anniversary. What does celebration mean as a symbol of positive energy, message and of giving to others?

We expect to see subjective and clear interpretations of the topic. The visual interpretation must include fabric-processing techniques as well as the artist´s own technique combined with fabric. The works of art must not exceed 20x20x20cm. A maximum of three art works per one person may be entered. The artworks mustn´t include a special construction nor a frame. The weight of the package must not be more than 2 kg.

 Artists who will be selected to take part at the exhibition are requested to pay an admission fee 30 €, students 20 €.. Each participant will receive a catalogue for free.
