TextielMuseum Tilburg Holland - Fiber futures

Fiber Futures | Art from Japan
The TextielMuseum in Tilburg Nertherlands is a restored factory with a striking glass entrance, for industrial & designer textiles. I had the opportunity to visit this amazing space yesterday and saw the current Fiber futures Art from Japan exhibition,an inspiring collection.
3 October 2015 till 7 February 2016
This Autumn the 
TextielMuseum presents ‘Fiber futures | Art from Japan’, a showcase of 30 Japanese artists at the cutting edge of the fibre-art scene. Covering wall hangings, sculptures, monumental installations, video and architecture, the works on display provide an understated, but at times exuberant picture of contemporary Japanese fibre art. All the featured artists, who include both newcomers and established names such as Jun’ichi Arai, Naomi Kobayashi and Reiko Sudō, use flexible materials that range from silk, washi paper, jute and hemp to steel wire, synthetic fibre and even recycled cocoons. Their methods show a deep respect for tradition as well as an openness to the latest weaving and dying technology.
