Transformação presents a reflection about the textile universe, its multiple forms and approaches and the growing recognition of textile art or art informed by textile as a contemporary art form.
The motto for this group exhibition comes from a quote by Anni Albers about weaving: Weaving is an example of a craft which is many-sided. Besides surface qualities, such as rough and smooth, dull and shiny, hard and soft, it also includes color, and, as the dominating element, texture, which is the result of the construction of weaves. Like any craft it may end in producing useful objects, or it may rise to the level of art.
