Nordic Textile Meeting in Copenhagen14-16.3 2014
NTA Nordic Textile Art is the host of a Nordic Textile Meeting in Copenhagen. The meeting takes place in Gammel Dok – the site of Danish Art Workshops and Danish Architecture Centre.
During three days more than sixty delegates from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden will meet for net-working, discussions and lectures focusing on the interaction between textile art and architecture. In the city of Copenhagen they will visit the Royal Opera House, (Operaen) and the Royal Danish Playhouse, (Skuespillhuset) among other well-known buildings.
Danish textile artists and designers Julie Henriksen and Mathilde Aggebo will lecture on their collaboration working with two projects – the stage curtain of the Black Diamond and the interior decoration of the Tietgen Student´s Residence. The participants of the meeting will take part in an excursion to the two buildings.
Vibeke Lindhart relates to a thousand years old connection between architecture and textiles in the Church when she lectures on the subject of Bishop´s copes of Denmark. Recently she published a book ”Se min kåbe”.
On Sunday – the last day of the meeting – the textile artists will visit the Blue Planet – for an inspirational workshop.
