News archive e-Pressed at Pretty Smart Textiles, Denmark From May 2nd till May 19th the exhibition Pretty Smart Textiles shows the works of Dutch artists and designers in the emerging field of electronic textiles, a new medium at the intersections of fashion, art and technology.
The exhibition Pretty Smart Textiles will give a glimpse into what happens when technology meets fashion. It will show us how artists and designers, at the intersection of fashion, art and technology bring textiles to life using movement, light and sound. The works will visualize the artists' and designers' views on contemporary culture.
The exhibition will display inter-active electronic textiles; textiles that demonstrate how you can play a more active part in electronic networks; wearables exploring how technology can help people perform tasks considered to be very "human"; and textiles that sense and react to each other, and also interact with their surroundings. The exhibition will be open to the public from 10:00 to 16:00 on the following days:
Monday the 2nd of May
Tuesday the 3rd of May
Friday the 6th of May
Saturday the 7th of May
Sunday the 8th of May
Monday the 16th of May
Thursday the 19th of May

e-Pressed at the Bielefelder Kunstverein, Germany From 14 November 2009 to 24 January 2010 the Bielefelder Kunstverein shows the thematic group exhibition "More than a T-Shirt". It centres around the t-shirt as an artistic medium. The exhibition shows a selection of exemplary projects by international artists, designers and fashion designers.

The projects shown in the exhibition take up the diverse developments of the T-Shirt in cultural history. Not only T-shirts are on display, but especially works which, in a wider sense, engage with the medium of the T-shirt as an object or as a carrier of text or images. At the Bielefelder Kunstverein, there are accordingly represented, in addition to numerous T-shirts, the media of sculpture, painting, drawing and video, as well as the documentation of actions, performances or dance events too.
