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).
