"e-textiles: Work of 11 Prominent Artists from Canada, the United States, Australia and Japan."
2002-03-06 until 2002-06-30
Textile Museum of Canada
Tortonto, ON, CA Canada

e-textiles brings to Toronto the work of 11 prominent artists from Canada, the United States, Australia and Japan. Making use of the natural world, portraits, photographs, abstract and computer-inspired imagery, these artists are creating, through their use of technology, a new weaving language.

Participating artists are Junichi Arai (Japan); Lia Cook (USA); Frances Dorsey (Canada); Emily DuBois (USA); Laura Foster Nicholson (USA); Ruth Scheuing (Canada); Cynthia Schira (USA); Liz Williamson (Australia); Hideo Yamakuchi (Japan); and Bhakti Ziek (USA).

The historical background is explored through the Textile Museum's permanent collection in Jacquard Weaving: The Birth of the Digital Image, curated by Marjike Kerkhoven. A profusion of richly patterned, colourful textiles from Europe, North America and Japan illustrate the 19th and early 20th century potential of digital images  in cloth.

Also, running is Out of this World: Textiles from the Spirit Realm . The collection features 17 Islamic prayer rugs from Persia, Turkey and the Caucasus Mountain region of Russia and Azerbaijan. Their coded pictures of the Garden of Paradise or of the abstract holy space of a mosque make each rug into a ritually pure, portable place for workship, a gateway to heaven. Curated by Natalia Nekrassova and Max Allen.
