International TECHstyle Art Biennial 3 (ITAB)


  • San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles 520 South First Street San Jose, CA 95113 USA

International TECHstyle Art Biennial 3 (ITAB) Returning for its third 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. This year jurors Louise Lemieux Bérubé, Patricia Malarcher, and Michael James brought their expert consideration and aesthetic to select work from a new pool of national and international entries.

As a part of their technical and artistic processes artists use techniques of digital jacquard weaving, digital printing, digital photography, manipulation of imagery using various computer programs, laser engraving, or computerized embroidery. As in previous years, some of the work is low tech while creating interesting themes and ideas about the technological world that we live in. ITAB showcases the tools of technology that allow artists to further their artistic visions as they explore the possibilities and inventions of textile art in the 21st century.

Thirty nine works are included by 36 artists from the United States, Canada, France, Hungary, Lithuania, New Zealand, and South Korea. The artists are:
