16ITT Lodz 2019-2020 extended date…. depending on what happens….

The 16th International Triennial of Tapestry; Breaching Borders exhibition  (16ITT) at The Central Museum of Textiles in Lodz, Poland is a great success and it’s very popular among the museums  visitors and specialists in and outside of Poland.  The Triennial has won the ‘Exhibition of the year 2020’ in the Polish Patches of Culture Award.

Prior to the threat of COVID-19, The Museum had already decided to extend the Exhibition until the 29th March 2020, and now, depending on what happens the Museum is hoping to extend the exhibition until the end of August 2020. The organisers will be planning a programme of events including lectures, talks and discussions for the end of the exhibition to celebrate Textile Art.  The Museum will announce more details in due course.

My work, ‘A bit of Skirt…’ is part of this oldest and the most important presentation of phenomena connected with the medium of textiles….. and hopefully like all worldwide Art Culture Music Sport venues/events, Lodz’s’ Central Museum of Textiles will be able to let its doors open again soon….. into the not toooo distant future x

On Saturday 5th October 2019 The 16th International Triennial of Tapestry; ‘Breaching Borders’ opened at The Central Museum of Textiles in Lodz, Poland. My Artwork “A bit of skirt” is part of this Prestigious Exhibition. With huge thanks to my 27 Crowd funder Supporters (see below), I flew out to Poland on Tues 1st October 2019 to install my ‘bit of skirt’ in situ, stayed in Lodz for the opening weekend and flew back to the UK on Mon 7th October 2019. There two other exhibitions which are part of the Triennial are ‘National Exhibition of Polish Tapestry’ curated by Janis Jefferies and ‘National Exhibition of Polish miniature Textiles’ curated by Anna Sliwa.

It is a great honour to be part of this amazing Triennial, and to be exhibiting in such a remarkable, breathtaking venue. ‘A Bit of Skirt” is one of 55 works in the Triennial and I am the Sole Artist representing the UK in the Exhibition. The Triennial is documented indepth in its own publication with supporting essays by Ann Coxon and Marta Kowalewska and also in pictures on the Central Museum’s website, (link below). ‘Breaching Borders’ continues until 15 March 2020.
