The New Art of the Loom to be presented in Montreal at Musee des Maitres et Artisans du Quebec

Thoma Ewen, Artistic Director of Moon Rain Centre, arranged for The New Art of the Loom to be presented in Montreal at Musee des Maitres et Artisans du Quebec , after it's presentation in Gatineau as part of La Triennale Internationale des Arts Textiles en Outaouais 2013.


Bonjour,



Barbara Heller(Canada),
Still life with bird,2003

 
Le maître tapissier Jean Lurçat (1892-1966) dit un jour : « La tapisserie est le rêve que nous accrochons sur nos murs. » Cet art ancien renaît aujourd'hui non seulement pour son attrait décoratif et architectural, mais aussi grâce au talent d'une nouvelle génération d'artistes qui s'y intéressent. Ainsi, NEW ART OF THE LOOM, Tapisserie internationale contemporaine révèle les rêves de tisserands contemporains, combinant les techniques anciennes à une nouvelle forme d'expression artistique émergente.
 
Le commissaire de cette exposition itinérante, Dirk Holger, tapissier de l’école d’Aubusson et dernier assistant de Jean Lurçat, vous invite à admirer les œuvres des artistes de réputation internationale : Christine Altona, Malgorzata Buszek, Thomas Cronenberg, Thoma Ewen, Susan Hart-Henegar, Ibolya Hegyi, Barbara Heller, Dirk Holger, Peter Horn, Susan Iverson, William Kentridge, Lialia Kuchma, Ulrika Leander, Sayed Mahmoud, Ann Naustdal, Inge Norgaard, Lorna Ramlochan singh, Jon-Eric Riis, Bum Soo Song, Miyuki Tatsumi, Joyce Tien et Henriette Zegersten Horn.
 
Au plaisir de vous voir au vernissage, le jeudi 17 octobre 2013 à 18h.
L’exposition se poursuit jusqu’au 15 décembre.
