INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION
The International Exhibition (Competitive) will count on 50 artworks, from 50 artists, selected by a international jury and from an open call. A portrait of the creation of contemporary textile art in the national and international artistic panorama with works coming from artists from all around the world.
(Acquisition Prize assigned by an international jury. Also an acquisition by ATP e an acquisition by ASM.)

ANN HAMILTON
An intervention by the American artist Ann Hamilton, invited by the biennial to develop and produce a specific and in-context artistic project for Contextile 2018, having as reference the Contextile 2018 concept and thematic framing.

INVITED COUNTRY
In partnership with the French Collective “Fiber Art Fever” the biennial presents an exhibition with works of 20 French artists, with joint curatorship and in coherence with the thematic concept of Contextile 2018.

INVITED ARTISTS
The biennial has invited several artists with relevant artistic expression in the field of textile, to produce an artistic project, specific and in context, for Contextile 2018, around the thematic concept and to be presented in public and expository spaces.

ARTISTIC RESIDENCIES
Contextile 2018, following a strategy of cooperation and approximation between the Embroidery of Guimarães and Textile Industry with contemporary textile art, summoned artists, national and international, to conduct artistic residencies, held between June and September 2018, having as objective the creation and production of artistic works from the thematic concept proposed by the Biennial.

”EMERGENCIES”: Artistic Teaching and Textile Creation
Contextile 2016, as in the previous editions, invited artistic schools with disciplines of textile techniques – FBAUP (Faculdade de Belas Artes do Porto), Escola Artística Soares dos Reis (Porto), Escola Artística António Arroio (Lisboa), FBAUL (Faculdade de Belas Artes de Lisboa), challenging students (and schools) to the creation and production of textile artworks, which will be presented in an exhibition and installation form. Other parallel activities will be held: workshops, talks, visits in context.

TextileTALKS
A fundamental part of the biennial’s action, for the framing of textile in the context of contemporary art, is centred in the reflection and debate of projects and ideas. In that sense, Textile Talks promote the presentation and discussion of projects and artistic works, within the thematic concept. We foresee the realization of several TextileTalks during the Biennial.

EDUCATIONAL SERVICE
a_WORKSHOPS: “To experiment Textile”
They are foreseen a set of technical and creative workshops destined to artists and general public, in different artistic areas.
b_ Oriented Visits
They are foreseen a set of oriented and guided visits, with artists and curators, around the exhibitions, destined to artists, schools and the general public.
