IS OFFICIAL – URUGUAY SELECTED AS SEAT OF THE VII BIENNIAL Posted By : WTA | Date : 26-10-2015 Uruguay has officially been selected as the host country of the 7th Biennial of Contemporary Textile Art of the WTA. After winning the fight to countries like Canada, United States and Spain, the Charrúa proposal was very solid, including many prestigious halls and a very attractive agenda. Since the 5th Biennial held in Buenos Aires, the Uruguayan delegation devoted itself to working hard on the candidature and later on in the achievement of the spaces and the private and public support to be able to secure the event. Uruguay is a highly educated country, with a very particular sense of art and full of an unparalleled passion. We are absolutely sure that it will be a unique event, as it will be the biggest in the history of that country in that artistic genre that is growing. Montevideo is one of the most beautiful capitals of the American continent, and everything is given so that the exhibitions, cultural events, seminars and workshops and events of social causes, are a success.
