Deadline: 25/11/2024

For this new edition, the prestigious XI International Biennial of Contemporary Textile Art 2025 focuses on the elemental thread of our existence: The Four Elements, which activate us, penetrate us, mold us, give us life and sustenance.

You are invited to reflect on the elements and pour creativity around the preferred element, through a work of textile art / fiber art.

The XI WTA Biennial  will have 3 categories:

Large: 50 artworks
Small: 50 artworks
and Three-Dimensional Format: 20 artworks

Each artist may apply as many times as they wish in any of the thematic elements they choose, but they may only be selected to participate with a single work per salon.
Each salon includes the options of the 4 elements to choose from, but each work must be worked around one of the four elements.

The works will be selected by an outstanding International Jury: Kinor Jiang (Hong Kong), Biret Tavman (Turkey), Ewa Latkowska-Żychska (Poland), Ieva Krūmiņa (Latvia), Susan Taber Avila (United States of America) and Paulina Ortiz Stradtmann (Costa Rica).
