The Baltic Mini Textile Gdynia Exhibition: On tour from Gdynia Museum Poland is a selection of works from one of Europe’s leading reviews of textile miniatures.

Launched in 1993 in Gdynia, Poland, the Baltic Mini Textile Exhibition is a juried event held every three years featuring artists from all over the globe.

Each of the works fits into a diminutive 20cm cube.

Anna Śliwa, the Exhibition Curator says, "The small scale (20 x 20 x 20 cm) lets artists experiment with complex, intricate techniques and use delicate, ephemeral materials.”

“The huge variety of the artists' own techniques and fascinating artistic solutions show us that textile miniatures are a fully independent, important genre, full of potential.”

The grand prix winners of the exhibition from 2016 and 2019 will both be part of the exhibition at COPACC.

Proudly brought to Colac by COPACC, the home of CrossXpollinatioN.

The Exhibition Launch for Exhibition Welcome Desk Volunteers, Colac South West TAFE Art students and local dignitaries will be held on the evening of July 22 at COPACC. To register your interest in volunteering for the Exhibition Welcome Desk please complete the form below.
