Everyday Matter – The Value of Textile Art
Textilmuseet i Borås, 16 september 2017 – 28 januari 2018
NTA Gallery 1 februari 2018 – 30 april 2020


In collaboration with the Textile Museum of Sweden, Nordic Textile Art present Everyday Matter, a notable exhibition of works in large formats.

”The slow processes of textile art with everyday materials as starting point. Its methods eliminate time and communicate through their materiality. Threads we all recognize but take years to master. While we look back in history, we work towards yet undiscovered possibilities.”

Everyday Matter – Critical processing of daily life


In the expression, Everyday Matter there is the significance of ordinary materials, but also that every day has a meaning. In the exhibition, we can see how every artist relates to the theme in different ways. The exhibition also shows the rich world of textile art – The Value of Textile Art.

NTA Nordic Textile Art – The Nordic cooperation and the Nordic textile art is the basis of Nordic Textile Art which is an association and a network that was created in 2006. NTA wants to create a forum and meeting places for textile art. Our goal is to convey and bring forward the Nordic textile art.
