The Triennial of Tapestry

Since 2001 when the first triennial Yugoslavian tapestry exhibition was held, Atelier 61 nurtures the intention to present the tapestry to the public as often as possible. In respect to the fact that tapestry today does not have its rightful place when it comes to art, Atelier 61 in collaboration with the artists who do tapestry, tries to return this medium to its former high position on the art scene. In such context, the triennial tapestry exhibition tries to gather as many authors and their artwork and in such manner shows a realistic overview of events, directions and artists’ poetics who deal with tapestry as an art expression. An expert jury awards two cash prizes at the triennial for the traditional and classical tapestry and for the contemporary expression within the textile art. Since 2014 the triennial tapestry became international in character.
