Open Call


What is the story behind your work? What stories, memories or traditions are intertwined into it? With the open call ‘Draad’ ('Thread'), Kunstwerkt & Texture are looking for visual artists who use textiles in their work. They are searching for textiles in the broadest meaning of the word. Slide your story ahead with ‘Draad’.

Submit your work until 12 November. A jury constisting of Han Decorte, Benjamin Mengistu Navet and Indre Svirplyte, will then consider the online submissions. If your work is selected, it will be part of the group exhibition of the same name at Texture in spring 2024.
