This exhibition will be open to public in October 2011 at meltemBIREY gallery, curated by Hitoshi Ujiie, director of the Center for Excellence of Digital Inkjet Printing for Textile at Philadelphia University.
Since, it’s inception in the late 1990’s, digital inkjet printing technology has had a dramatic impact on a diverse range of creative applications for textile practitioners. Inkjet textile printing has affected both the design world, and the art and craft community, where it is becoming an innovative method of producing refined surface explorations. Throughout its development phase, digital inkjet printing has created new design business models, and has been regarded as one of the most sustainable green printing processes. At the same time, this technology has generated new creative design styles, which cannot be visualized by any other traditional printing technologies.
Inkjet Textiles 2011 seeks new printed textile design, which demonstrates innovative and creative styles, and encourages one of a kind, prototype or commercially produced textile submissions.
