Artist in Residence, AiR 4 x 400 years, is a collaborative project and artistic exchange between Gothenburg, Piteå, Luleå and Borås, which will all turn 400 in 2021. On October 25-30, it is time for Borås to host the final residence, as an artist from each anniversary city is welcomed to the Textile Fashion Center to explore the city's textile identity.

For a week, the artists will each work with their work in a cube of 2.5x2.5x2.5 m. In the preparatory work, the artists have received information about Borås 400 years, the city's textile industrial history and an insight into today's challenges and future hopes for the textile industry. . The material to be used is leftover textiles from companies in the area and with this as a basis, everyone has got an idea.

During the week, visitors to the center can follow the process on site in the centre's public areas.

Saturday the 30th of October is the inauguration and the works will remain for just over a month.
