The 6th Riga International Textile and Fibre Art Triennial.
The aim of the organizers of the Triennial is to create a high-quality exhibition which will present and promote the topical and most innovative trends in the field of textile and fibre art in Europe and in the world today. The theme Identity was selected due to the fact that in 2018 we are going to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Latvian State, and the Triennial is included in the culture program of the upcoming festivity. In the same year our two neighbouring countries – Lithuania and Estonia – will also celebrate their centenary anniversaries. Therefore the organizers this time want to emphasise more the role and contribution of the Baltic artists. At the same time the Triennial will be open to participants from other countries. Traditionally guest artists will be invited for the show. On the basis of the Triennial, International Conference is planned as well. Creative workshops, talks with the artists and other events will also be held in the course of the exhibition.
The theme IDENTITY is multifareous in a philosophical sense therefore we expect artists to discuss it from all points of view. It might have wide interpretations and can be viewed from different aspects, as
PERSONAL IDENTITY, etc.
