Dina Medvinsky

Dina Medvinsky is a textile artist, whose initial incursion in the world of Andean textiles was her research of ethnographic textiles of Isluga, a small Aymara community of the Chilean highland, for the Isluga Center of the Andean Research. Later, as Director of the Iquique Regional Museum, she had extensive contact with archaeological textiles. That experience enabled her to confirm the continuity of textile techniques, designs, and functions from ancestral times.

The artist has participated in the dissemination, promotion and curatorship of Andean textiles, also in textiles training for urban and rural workshops on design and color. Her creations have participated in collective and individual exhibitions in Chile and abroad.
