The Asia-Europe 3 exhibition was opened in the Central Museum of Textiles, Łódź, Poland on the 7th Sept, 2017 and it will be open until 12th Nov, 2017



In the opening curator Marika Szaraz gave a speech:

The Asia-Europe Fiber Art exhibitions where founded in 2009 by Erny PIRET. The concept of the Asia-Europe exhibitions is to show the rich and creative imagination of European- and Asian textile artists through their specific cultures.
 The exhibition presents a particular vision of textile and fiber art works, signifying that artists exclusively use the technique to express themselves.If Asian works are authentic, and their culture is a continuation of their traditions, Europeans have nothing to envy, they have every reason to be proud of their ingenuity, diversity and originality.Convinced of these qualities I have accepted works, that are executed in traditional Asian techniques, only created by Asian artists.

Call for works, AE 4, new deadline!

The deadline for applications to participate in the 4th edition of 'Asia-Europe' is changing foreward to 1 july 2017.

Call for works, AE 4 2018-19

After 'Asia-Europe III', I started organizing the next 'Asia-Europe 4' exhibition for the end of 2018.

The exhibition is based on the innovation of cultural, regional and traditional textile techniques. The emphasis is on the research and development of technology and on presentation. Works must be non-figurative, non-wearable art and must be realized in a single technique. The colours can only be used to highlight the technique, however, the colour is never a determinating factor in the work.
Convinced of the ingenuity and creativity of the European artists, I intend to accept works produced by traditional Asian techniques only created by Asia artists.

Are you interested in participating in the next 'Asia-Europe 4' exhibition?
If you are, could you please send me a first proposition to exhibit: style, technique, materials, dimensions, number of pieces (series) and must be representative of your artwork.
Please send, before the first of September, your application, …
