The sixth Exhibition of the TISO (Textile and Contemporary Costume Section) of the ULUPUDS (Association of Applied Arts Artists and Designers of Serbia), which has been taking place for twenty-four years now, will be opened at the Museum of Applied Art, on Wednesday, 20 December 2017, at 7 p.m. The exhibition encompasses the Textile and Contemporary Costume Section members’ most significant achievements in the field of fashion, textiles and accessories. The exhibition propositions require that the works created in the previous four years be exhibited. The exhibition Council has selected 39 exhibitors who will be presented with about 60 works.
The significance of the exhibition setting lies in the diversity of exhibits in every sense of the word: in textile field, various materials (leather, cotton, wool, silk, recycled materials, wood, metal...) and techniques (traditional and modern). The exhibition presents the following: weft-faced woven tow tapestries, tapestries bearing computerized ethno patterns, coats and dresses of geometric shapes, jewellery made out of recycled pieces, gloves, screens, shoes, bags, as well as video works and spatial installations.
In the exhibition catalogue, Maja Škaljac has pointed out that from year to year the exhibition has been shifting the boundaries of this branch of applied art and sending a message that our artists, based on their innovative ideas, successful realizations and masterful performance, stand high on the ladder of contemporary art scene, along with the most respectable world authors in this field.
The heterogeneity of the exhibits displayed, a large number of interested exhibitors of different authorial manuscripts, sensibilities and generations, an audience that eagerly awaits the latest achievements in the field of unique fashion, decorative and experimental textiles are strong enough arguments for this exhibition to continue living into the future.
