Like so many other institutions stung by the recession, our friends at the Colorado State University (CSU) have had to endure some budget cuts resulting in their decision to cancel the installation of "Design Shibori" at their university gallery.
Design Shibori was first hosted in Paris (Nov 08) and organized by ENSAD (Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs) for the ISS'08 - Paris. After, it toured to UK. A selection of works then traveled to Japan. *See all previous blog posts about DS here
If you were an exhibiting artist in the Paris or UK exhibition and you have not yet had your works returned to you, please contact: Gisèle Belliot / gisele.belliot AT ensad.fr
Artists shown in Arimatsu (see list of exhibitors below) should have received their works by now. If not, please comment on this post and leave your email address.
