Up until next October, the courtyard of Bolaños in the Parador de Lerma (Burgos) will host the exhibition “Metamorphosis of wool. Creations from the Royal Tapestry Factory in the Parador collection”.
This exhibit, produced by Paradores and the Royal Tapestry Factory Foundation, aims to introduce the public to the extensive collection of textile works created in recent years by the historic Madrid factory housed by the hotel company.
The exhibition gathers carpets woven in recent years applying the same techniques already used in the 18th century and in line with the designs of contemporary artists such as Manolo Valdés, Alberto Corazón or Keiko Mataki.
There are also tapestries designed by Guillermo Pérez Villalta, Joseph Domjan or Juan Gris. Through these works, the visitor experiences the magical transformation of the textile language through the designs devised by plastic artists.
Óscar López, president of Paradores, unveiled the exhibition, stressing that “art is an intrinsic part of Paradores.
In addition to the exhibition, there will be a series of conferences taking place on the first Friday of the month, which will enable visitors to delve deeper into the history and techniques of textiles since its origins. We look forward to seeing you!
