ITAB: International TECHstyle Art Biennial

Deadline: March 14, 2014 (ONLINE)

ITAB: International TECHstyle Art Biennial
San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles

San Jose CA
July 30–November 9, 2014

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 that assembles—virtually and in the real world—at San Jose’s Biennial Zero1 Festival.

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.
