Exhibition “Soft Negotiations”

Soft Negotiations, the exhibition of the Department of Textile Design of Estonian Academy of Arts will be opened in the Gallery of EKA on October 15 at 16.00

Just as the warp threads connect the weft, serving as a bridge for each other, this exhibition by the Department of Textile Design invites audiences to ponder the role of textile in today’s and future society. At the exhibition, the department presents contemporary trends that often straddle or meld with the boundaries of other disciplines. That in turn creates a new, multidisciplinary approach where textile can take very different forms: it can convey structure, idea, protest, message, self-expression, pattern or simply colour combination.
