Fiber Art Sweden 2017

Fiber Art Sweden (FAS), is a network of artists working with textile means, methods and practices that promotes discussion and change in the extended textile field. FAS was founded in Stockholm in 1998.

The term “fibre art” represents a free and innovative artistic exploring of fibres, being a contemporary art form drawing upon textile traditions and modes of production.

The extended textile field is characterized by an infinite range of possibilities and options, in which FAS uses a nomadic and mobile strategy. Continuously and consistently, FAS actively has searched for new and unknown spaces and situations, looking for new positions and collaborations.The website www.fiberartsweden.nu is the virtual exhibition space and showroom for the network, and functions as it´s only stable location. Here members show their work, and the site also functions as a channel for information both within the network and outwards. There is an archive over exhibitions, seminars, discussions and other activities where members have initiated or participated in.

The autumn 2017 FAS has 43 members, most of them working in Stockholm.

The board consists of:
Chairman: Ulrika Wedin
Board: Petter Hellsing, Maria Hägglund, Leyun Wang and Maria Sandstig

Professional artists may apply for membership. More information: INFO - FASmedlemskap
