Organised by the Board of Trustees of the Cultural Foundation for Textile Arts and the Gallery of Szombathely and supported by the National Cultural Fund of Hungary, the 5th International Textile Arts Triennial was devised to centre around the inspiring call of the motto “Imago”. Works of arts were entered in five artistic categories and a professional jury has made the selection.
Where: Pesti Vigado
The categories ‘mini textile’, ‘band textile’ and ‘flag textile’ include both Hungarian and international works of arts (altogether 110 works). In the ‘mini textile’ category, the Nagano Goro Award, founded by multiple Triennial award-winning Japanese textile artist, was first conferred in 2015.
The awards were personally presented to Hungarian and international artists by Nagano Goro. The categories ‘wall and space textile’ and ‘design’ only feature works by Hungarian artists (a total of 100 works).
At the Triennial, professionally outstanding works were recognised by the bestowal of not fewer than 14 awards by the supporters of the event including the Ministry of Human Capacities, the Hungarian Academy of Arts, the Association of Hungarian Fine and Applied Artists, the Hungarian Design Council, the Town of Szombathely with County Rights, Nagano Goro, and Rózsa Anna Foundation.
