TEXTILE ART OF TODAY is an international exhibition project which presents contemporary textile design. It differs from other textile exhibitions by the fact that it has been installed five times in important galleries allowing visitors from the four European countries (Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary) to see it. Furthermore, the project is being carried out under the auspices of the ministers of culture of the V4 countries. The Textile Art of Today project strives to present textile as a modern and dynamic discipline transcending the limits of the classical perception of textile art. Since the establishment of the event, an international jury awarded it the prestigious Božena Augustínová Grand Prix, the award named after the significant Czechoslovak artist. Textile Art of Today takes place in three-year cycles and 2018 was its fifth year. The aim is to prepare a very strong project in Central Europe that is accepted by artists and the general public. 400 artists from 49 countries and 5 continents participated in the fifth year of Textile Art of Today, where the jury of curators selected the 121 best works from among the 1,000 submissions. The motto of Textile Art of Today’s future is combining textile art and modern technology. We present greater interactivity where the visitors do not feel anonymous; they become the part of the entire exposition. The new feature, entitled Virtual Universe, is a unique presentation of textile work that will have its global premiere at the exposition at the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum. Visitors will be teleported to the planet of arts where they will be surrounded by artwork and become co-creators of this game. Visitors can virtually enter into any artwork and move around in it. After the end of the exhibition at the Danubiana, it will move to the Tatra Gallery in Poprad (Slovakia), the Slovácke Muzeum in Uherské Hradište (Czech Republic), the Pesti Vigadó Gallery in Budapest (Hungary) and the Muzeum Historyczne in Bielsko–Biała (Poland).
