      >> Montreal, October 9, 2012 - From October 24th to November 30th, 2012, la galerie TRAMES will be hosting 2D - 3D, an exhibition of the English artist and textile designer, Philippa Brock.
      >>
      >> Inspired by folding techniques, 2D - 3D brings together a selection of Philippa Brock's experimental projects composed of textiles produced on a Jacquard loom. Brock's research deals with the structural possibilities of textiles. In her work, she is constantly pushing back the limits of what can be realized with state-of-the-art computer equipment and a combination of unusual materials. In this exhibition, the first part Self Fold presents works that are richly textured with spectacular three-dimensional effects. The second part, X-Form, developed specifically for this event, explores folding of materials while integrating fibres that react to daylight or to ultra-violet light.
      >>
      >> Philippa Brock is internationally known for her advanced research in Jacquard weaving. Since 1990, her work specializes woven textiles as well as research and development of smart textiles. She is the Woven Textiles Pathway Leader at Saint Martins College of Art & Design in London, one of the most innovative and prestigious textile schools in the world. She will take advantage of her trip to Montreal to offer a master class to textile professionals.
      >>
      >> Prior to the vernissage at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, October 24, Philippa Brock will give a conference on her work. The number of places are limited. Please reserve atcommunications@...
      >>
      >> La galerie TRAMES is open from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 4:30 pm. Admission is free.
