The article focuses on the exhibitions organized by several artists to compensate for the lack of interest shown by official governmental organs in France. These artists were affected by the demise of the "Textile/Art Language" magazine, the opposition to textile art shows by some arriviste museum curators, and the closing of many private galleries. Marie-Anne Ichter, Hélène Soubeyran, and Christianne de Casteras are among of the artists that organized the events. Ichter organized a group show "Contemporary Silk as Art" at Musée Historique des Tissus in Lyon in 1992 while Soubeyran traveled to Africa, Asia, and the U.S. due to the success of her tour de force.
