Application deadline: 22 October.
In 2010, the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles launched the International TECHstyle Art Biennial (ITAB). Returning now for its fourth incarnation, ITAB is a juried exhibition of work by artists merging fiber media with new information and communication technologies in their artistic processes, as a medium of artistic expression, and/or in the content of their work.
Leveraging its location in Silicon Valley, ITAB serves as the premiere platform for introducing the work of artists exploring the intersection of fiber and technology to a global community.
Fibers, textiles, and the language of textile patterning have achieved wide attention in contemporary art practice often as a means of evoking an experience that is both historical and contemporary. ITAB seeks to expose and explore the tensions between and among works by artists using fiber media whose work employs diverse artistic disciplines: architecture, fashion, fiber art, installation art, interior design, new media, painting, sculpture, etc. Artwork demonstrating a keen understanding and mastery of the aesthetic, structural/technical, and semiotic possibilities of fiber and of digital, computerized, or networked information and communication technologies are the hallmark of the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles’ International TECHstyle Art Biennial.
