New Beat -  Tohoku University of Art & Design  •   Yamagata, Japan
Deadline:  May 24, 2018
More Info

Students across the globe will exhibit innovative 2D and 3D art inspired by material manipulation and cutting-edge technical application, pushing the boundaries of contemporary art further into the future.

Organized by 11 ISS (International Student Competition) and hosted by the Tohoku University of Art & Design, this competition promotes an international exchange of ideas and inspiration amongst the next generation of artists and designers exploring new dimensions in surface design.

Students are encouraged to use any pliable material as a "textile" and to experiment with color and shape. Just as shibori techniques create a "memory on cloth" wherein the transformation from 2D to 3D can be interpreted and reverse engineered, the resulting design should showcase the material's "memory" i.e., a recorded expression of the process. Students are encouraged to engage with environmental and social issues or topics relevant to their local community in their work.
