On January 16, 2021, the 11th « From Lausanne to Beijing » International Fiber Art Biennale opened online at https://lbfiberart.ad.tsinghua.edu.cn. The exhibition is jointly hosted by the Academy of Arts & Design, Tsinghua University and the China National Arts and Crafts Society. Over 300 works of fiber art by artists from five continents are featured in this Biennale. They will be available for online viewing to audiences across the globe through February 16.
With the pandemic spreading across the globe, no time has ever been as full of instability as the present. Head Curator Lin Lecheng commented on this year’s Biennale: « Fortune rewarded artists’ passion, providing an opportunity to hold this exhibition in this challenging year and once again proving art’s indomitable vitality. » The « From Lausanne to Beijing » International Fiber Art Biennale embraced this year’s difficulties and sought out new opportunities in this time of crisis. « Symbiosis and Coexistence » was chosen by the organizing committee as this Biennale’s theme after rounds of intensive discussion. The virtual exhibition hall is the heart of the show, connecting fiber art with the current moment and social responsibility. This new technology has helped bring fiber artists worldwide together with audiences online.
