Latvian National Museum of Art

The aim of the organizers of the Triennial is to create a high-quality exhibition  which will present the topical and most innovative trends in the field of textile and fibre art in Europe and in the world today. The theme DIVERSITY&UNITY was selected due to the fact that Latvia will become the country of presidency for the EU in 2015, therefore the emphasiz lies on the national identity in the context of EU and the global world.

How different national cultures express their identity within the European and global context and in contemporary society? Is it possible within the theme to create an artwork, which actualizes or influences the acute problems of our modern epoch in a social, political and cultural context?
