Fiber Art, What it’s flexible, can be weaved

It has been four years since the first edition of Inventario 20, the biennial exhibition that the Museo Unico Regionale dell'Arte Tessile Sarda - MURATS - of Samugheo, dedicated to the research, knowledge, and valorization of contemporary Fibre production in Sardinia.

The exhibition Fiber Art, devised and curated by the Director of the MURATS Museum Baingio Cuccu and Anna Rita Punzo, presents the technical, material, conceptual, design and performance declinations of a fluid, dynamic, constantly evolving artistic movement, capable of bringing together stylistically different experiences and research, united by the use of the same medium, fiber, understood in its broadest sense as thread, fabric, cloth, paper, pulp, natural and synthetic raw material.

The Biennial reveals an intense, original, and complex artistic reality, capable of translating disused objects, offcuts, and Fast fashion garments into upcycling works, declining traditional manufacturing techniques - such as weaving, embroidery, sewing, and weaving - into daring creative experiments, converting fiber into a powerful tool for narrating today's society, personal feelings, and collective experience.
