Aurelia Muñoz Award
For the 8th WTA Biennial, the Aurelia Muñoz Award has been founded in recognition of the prestigious work of this important Spanish artist. The award will be given to a Spanish artist who has been distinguished for his or her career, both in Spain and internationally. The award has the support of the Muñoz family.
Judith Scott Award
The 8th WTA Biennial will award the Judith Scott Prize, in honor of this deaf visual artist with Down Syndrome, recognized worldwide for her “cobwebs of wool” as one of the main representatives of Art Brut and Outsider or Marginal Art. This award will be bestowed on an artist who offers through Fiber Art a space for reflection and questioning of normality towards a multiplicity of identity, corporeal, and creative forms.
As of this 8th International Biennial of Contemporary Textile Art, the World Textile Art Organization establishes the WTA Award. It will be presented in recognition to that person distinguished for outstanding achievements in pro of contemporary textile art – in areas ranging from research, artistic creation, education, writing, and cultural initiatives to promotion and diffusion of contemporary textile culture.
