Artistas textiles "tiran del hilo" en Miami para resistir a la pandemia Medio centenar de artistas textiles del colectivo FAMA, la mayor parte mujeres, "tiran del hilo" para demostrar esta semana del arte en Miami su maestría con la aguja, el uso inventivo de fibras orgánicas y tejidos y el valor terapéutico de esta técnica como resistencia ante la covid-19.
El mercado, con sus modas, puede que no preste toda la atención debida a una iniciativa como la de este colectivo surgido este año, en mitad de la pandemia del coronavirus, con el fin de "educar, avanzar y elevar la tradición de la técnica textil en fibra", dijo a Efe Aurora Molina, cofundadora de FAMA (Fiber Artists-Miami Association).

Threads of Resilience: A Juried Exhibition by members of Fiber Artists-Miami Association (FAMA).
DEADLINE for Submissions: March 15, 2021 for the physical exhibition in the spring (TBA), July 1, 2021 for the OVR (Online Virtual Room). All artworks will be submitted digitally for adjudication. Delivery, exhibition dates, and venue for physical show to be announced.
Threads of Resilience explores the current social and political climate in the US through works created in fibers.
“The personal is political,” a term borrowed from a 1969 essay by activist Carol Hanisch, suggests that identity and personal experiences intersect with social and political structures. Threads of Resilience invokes artists to use textile as an instrument of challenge and resistance, but also of reconciliation.
