"25 YEARS WTA"

25 years weaving history…

October / December 2022

INTRODUCTION

About the WTA Organization

The WTA Organization was born in 1997 in the city of Miami-Florida, United States, under the name of Women in Textile Art.

Pilar Tobón, manager and Colombian textile artist, raised this great challenge in the face of the need to vindicate textile art locally and globally.

Pilar Tobón has always pursued the objectives of supporting-disseminating-promoting-encouraging textile artists and their works.

For the year 2009 and given the inclusive and universal nature of textile art, it changes its name to World Textile Art.

Our Goals

TEXTILE ART PROMOTION

Strengthen, inspire and promote contemporary textile art manifestations everywhere where WTA is present.

NEW ARTISTS

Offer new artists the necessary tools to promote their work and their career.

SENSIBILITY

Promote the sensibility among people from the arts worldwide in order to prevent the perception of our artists from being craftmen instead of real artists.

SOLIDARITY TIES

Strengthen solidarity ties between artists and art lovers from all over the world.

BE A PART OF HISTORY

Our network of Textile Artists extends to more than 75 countries in ALL continents.

For the past 25 years and nine Biennials, World Textile Art has held the most important events world wide. Hundreds of artists have emerged after participating in the Biennials, or in another of our official events. It is a life-changing experience that will allow your work to be exhibited next to the ELITE. Our catalogues and official books reach thousands of places around the world. Our Website is seen by thousands of people annually, and our events attract masses. Don’t let the great opportunity pass: Don’t wait until the last moment. Don’t think you can only submit under a single format: You may submit several proposals within any of the four categories, and receive an excellent discount for multiple registration payment.
