Valcellina Award

What is Valcellina Award?

The Valcellina Award, now at its eleventh edition, is the International Contemporary Textile/Fiber Art Competition open to young fiber-artists under 35 years of age.
This Award was created to enhance the interest in contemporary textile art, encouraging  new talents, stimulating art research and experimentation.
In the past ten editions, the competition was attended by artists from all over the world, with different background and education, making the Valcellina Award a place for further learning, experiences and exchange.

The Valcellina Award is the most important event created by Le Arti Tessili Association for social and culture activities founded in 1987.

 

Theme of the 11th edition

WE(H)AVE a play on words between the verb to weave - tesserae and the expression we have - we have. Fiber art becomes an interpreter of the present, dialoguing with historical memory to seek innovative visions: through artistic research, designing a cultural and social transformation.

Image of the 11th edition

To represent the theme of the announcement of the 11th edition, the scientific committee has chosen a detail of the work of the previous edition - part of the Valcellina Collection - entitled Knot to Knot by the Polish artist Magdalena Grenda which explores the geometric principles, with threads and knots, it evokes the culture of weaving and the identity that represents it.
