Janice Lourie: The Woven Image

About the Exhibition


Sep 8 – Dec 18, 2020


One of the pioneers of the digital image, computer scientist, musician, weaver, and graphic artist, alumnus Janice Lourie (b.1930), J57, has been producing complex visual imagery using text and architecture for over 30 years. Tufts University Art Galleries are thrilled to present her newest body of work in conversation with her earliest achievements at IBM—where she filed the company’s very first software patent in 1970—to mark her incredible career that has fused computer science and the arts for more than half a century. Organized by Dina Deitsch with Liz Canter.
