Abstract:

Through the auspices of the international biennial, contemporary practices in textiles have reached a maturity of critical reference. Drawing on anthropological theory (Alfred Gell) and contemporary critical theory from art and performance (Amelia Jones), this article supports and frames a relationship between exchange, conversation, and enactment as manifested through textile practice in the context of Textile 07: Kaunas Textile Art Biennial.
