On Friday September 21/ 2011 day two of  “Rewind into the Future; European Textile Networks 16th Conference which took place the opening weekend of the Kauno Bienalé Textile 11 the “Networking Sessions” took place. This format of less formal ten minute presentation in rapid fire secession is, in my experience, unique to the ETN meetings. It is the opportunity for twenty or so individuals representing schools, textile institutions and national or regional maker directed organizations to presented current and up and coming projects/ events they are working on. While showcasing the work they are also encouraged to request the cooperation of those of us attending to spreading the word while offering an invitation visit and/or to participate. Of these, the presentation of “Fibre Visions” by Shan Zeng of the China Academy of Art, and Shi Hui (Head of Fiber and Space Art Studio,and is a Director of the Hangzhou Triennial about the development of the first Hangzhou International Fibre Art Exhibition taking place in China in 2013, held the interest of the audience and is something to watch for.

 Below is the text they provided us and a selection of images from recent exhibitions they presented at home and abroad.

“Fiber visions” First Hangzhou International Fiber Art Exhibition 2013 CHINA

The Hangzhou Triennial, an exhibition of contemporary fiber art, will be held in Hangzhou. It is one of the most significant cities in China, only 150 km away from Shanghai. On the west side of the city, lies the beautiful West Lake - its Cultural Landscape was added to the UN World Heritage List on June 24 •

As an ancient proverb says: “Above there is heaven; below there is Suzhou and Hangzhou.” Throughout the ages, Hangzhou has been an abundant land of ‘milk and honey’ and was highly praised by Marco Polo, when he traveled from Italy during the Yuan Dynasty, as ‘the most beautiful and magnificent city in the world’.

The first Triennial will be primarily organized and administered by Zhejiang Museum of Art, National Silk Museum and China Academy of Art - the Varbanov Tapestry Research Center which will continue to be one of its main venues in future events.

We intend to invite over 50 artists from all over the world to participate in the exhibition with ‘Fiber visions’ as its theme.

We are happy to have the opportunity to take advantage of the unique characteristics of the Zhejiang Museum of Art and China National Silk Museum and would like to invite artists to come and collaborate with each other and showcase their selected original art works as well as those from the museum collections. By taking a curatorial approach, we mean to bring together artists from different generations.

As the Hangzhou Triennial aims to create a wide range of opportunities for the public to become involved with contemporary art, exhibitions and programs will be aligned under the keywords:

• Contemporary - Historic • Hand • Mind • Development • Heritage • Local • Global

As a result, we hope to achieve the following:

- To enrich people’s experience via seeing and appreciating textile and fiber art.

- To nurture both artists and art enthusiasts

- To connect contemporary art with the future and the past

- To build a network of communities engaged in the creation and promotion of contemporary textiles and fiber art.

We will also coordinate with various local governments and communities, such as the People’s Government of Zhejiang Province, Hangzhou Municipal and Cultural Administrative Office, and enthusiastic individuals who are devoted to culture development in Hangzhou. Working with these local partners is one of the unique features of Hangzhou Triennial.

We hope to support contemporary artists and their creative endeavors and highlight the significance of their contributions to the human society. We also hope that the Hangzhou Triennial will establish itself as a forum that expands the cultural capacity in and outside of China.
