Affiliates Exposition

San José, Costa Rica. “House of Culture “José Figueres Ferrer of Popular Bank. September 6 to October 12, 2010.

This First Encounter conceives textiles as Sustainable tradition and responsible innovation from the point of their diversity of styles, geographies, histories, and applications, which generates innovating proposals impacting the development of persons, their community, their environment, and global society.

Within the conceptual frame of Sustainable tradition and responsible innovation, the affiliates’ exhibit looks to deepen, or accentuate the theme of Continuity and Innovation.

The primordial accent of Continuity and Innovation consists on reviewing, by means of an artistic textile proposal, these creative languages which are resistant to time, in order to insert their gestures and motivations of our own time and space.

The Affiliate Invitation by Redtextilia is a show selected by the Curatorial Committee.

International Exposition

San José, Costa Rica.Costa Rican-North American Cultural Center. September 6 through October 12, 2010

This First Encounter conceives textiles as Sustainable Tradition & Responsible Innovation as of the point of its diversity of styles, geography, history, and applications, which generates innovating proposals impacting the development of persons, community, the environment, and global society…

Sustainable Tradition & Responsible Innovation looks to integrate the textile creation object in its diverse uses, with its experimental process—or its ancestral-indigenous character, as part of a complex cultural reality, full of clearness and confusion.

Sustainable Tradition & Responsible Innovation includes the concepts, “environment, society, and human being,” as a supportive alliance, which is committed to innovation and change. Said conceptual structure suggests the transforming possibility through creative practice, which with its tools and strategies allows the aesthetic experience to be incorporated into community, not only as contemplative possibility but also as an opportunity for human development.

The International Encounter is a show selected by a Curatorial Committee, and will be exhibited at Gallery Sophia Wanamaker at the Costa Rican-North American Cultural Center.

SOFT…4 Fourth International Textile Fashion Accessories Biennale

Asociación de Creadores Textiles de Madrid – ACTM

The Fourth SOFT edition, “International Biennial of Textile Accessories,” organized by the Association of Textile Creators of Madrid (ACTM,) will be held at the exposition room at Spain Cultural Center in San José, Costa Rica, from August 26 to September 26, 2010. This event is part of the First International Encounter of the Ibero-American Textile Network: Textile Creation, Sustainable Tradition & Responsible Innovation. Later on, the works will travel to Spain to be exhibited in Madrid and other cities during 2011.

The exposition invitation was open to creators from around the world, and selected only accessories to fashion—excluding garments—made in textile techniques, and using textile materials, or making reference to textiles.

The jury, composed by Beatrijs Sterk, General Secretariat of the European Textile Network (ETN), Paulina Ortiz, President of the Ibero-American Textile Network and organizer of the Costa Rican event, and the collective vote by ACTM affiliates, viewed the images sent by Internet and selected 107 pieces—the majority grouped in collections—made by 59 creators from the following countries: Spain (12), Costa Rica and Taiwan (8 each), Germany and Argentina (5 each), England and Japan (3 each), Belgium, Turkey and USA (2 each), and one each from Brazil, Chile, Denmark, Slovenia, Holland, Italy, Mexico, Portugal, and Switzerland. Amongst the participants there are nine ACTM affiliates.

Special invitees of the Organization are Annette Quentin-Stoll (Germany), Lotte Dalgaard (Denmark), Felieke van der Leest (Holland); and Candela Cort, Kima Guitart and Maribel Aramendía from Spain.

The exhibition may also be seen online at www.creadorestextiles.org , Actividades , Exposiciones , where it will be posted until the end of 2011.
