Open Call 2024

"Unraveling Surrealism: Celebrating Women's Narratives through Contemporary Fiber Art"

Hartvest Project is happy to invite The Fiber Artists Miami Association (FAMA) to team up for a special juried exhibition of fiber-based work titled "Unraveling Surrealism: Celebrating Women's Narratives through Contemporary Fiber Art."


Curated by Hartvest Project in collaboration with FAMA and hosted by Pinecrest Gardens, this exhibition celebrates 100 years of Surrealism, pays homage to the incredible legacy of women in art, and reimagines their narratives through the lens of contemporary textile art.


At the same time, Hartvest Project is celebrating its 10th anniversary, a journey of art connections that has included the production of approximately 300 art events and the collaboration of over 250 local artists, organizations, curators, and followers who have been part of this exciting art journey.


For this exhibition, we invite artists to create works that think about the magic and strangeness of beauty in the unconventional medium of textile art, revindicating 100 years in history.


We aim to amplify and liberate these voices, reclaim their narratives, and illuminate their enduring influence on the artistic landscape through the fusion of different fiber techniques. Artists are encouraged to push the boundaries of fiber art, forging new connections between past and present and tradition and innovation.

How It All Started

The annual exhibition Women Pulling at the Threads of Social Discourse has explored the women’s vote, the practice of quilting, and the creation of a room safe for creativity in partnership with Fiber Artists Miami Association (FAMA). For this year’s edition, The CAMP is equally interested in subverting gender-related expectations while leaning into those perspectives using Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House and all the reductive connotations of the feminine flooding through the text from bothmen and women as inspiration. 


Going as far back as the mid 1500’s, the word “doll” has been used to describe a compliant but pretty young woman, valued for her attractiveness and not much else. Society’s long-accepted habit of objectifying women, their voices, and experiences continues to be played out in social interactions, on the screen, in the news, and even over a coffee. This year, we ask artists to explore the ideas of this behavior through the idea/concept of dolls and dollhouses. The fourth edition of the exhibition focuses on how “the dolls," i.e., the women of yesteryear (and today) have always held the capacity of power, but were reduced to objects under the patriarchal purview.

This exhibition will explore the ways color is used to interpret and represent history, heritage, and culture through the lens of fiber arts. We invite any conceptual textile artists from FAMA to produce pieces reflecting on this theme, drawing from your own experiences, identities, and ancestry.

This exhibition will explore our heritage, where artists can study their traditions and reflect on their relationship with their ancestors: learn from them, honor them, forgive them, and heal with them.

The collective narrative of this exhibition will be rich and based on the diverse ancestry lines reflected in the multitude of techniques the group already manages.

The museum welcomes artworks from individual artists and proposals from groups for large installations.
