TSA is please to announce that the 2014 Biennial Symposium, New Directions: Examining the Past, Creating the Future,  will feature our first juried exhibition, hosted by Los Angeles’ Craft and Folk Art Museum (CAFAM). The symposium theme explores change and innovation in textiles in the past while exploring the state of the field of textiles, textile study, production and creativity; today and for the future. Following this broad theme, the exhibition—the opening of which will be celebrated on the final day of the conference sessions–includes the work of TSA members from around the world whose practices draw on textile materials, techniques, or knowledge, widely defined. Nineteen works from established and emerging artists were selected from more that 400 submissions from 159 artists internationally.
