Craft Revolution

February 2 - March 23, 2019

Opening Reception February 2nd. 6-10pm

Second Reception March 2nd. 6-10pm

Juror: Staci Steinberger,
Associate Curator, Decorative Arts and Design, LACMA 

 

Craft Revolution shows works with the unity of inspiration and skill philosophers call “craft” --- in drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, ceramics, weaving, architectural plans and maquettes, interior design, furniture design, fashion design, photography, video, installation art, and objets d’art in all mediums, including wood, metal, stone, clay, paper, textiles and glass. Craft is the bond between concept and technique, the link between hand, mind, and heart. Our juror selected unusual, avant-garde, hybrid artworks that merge together, in a single piece, elements of fine art and the traditional crafts. Craft Revolution illuminates an important truth about contemporary art: we can no longer categorically separate craft, fine art, decorative art, and utilitarian, designer objects. Sophisticated, well-crafted objects --- no matter the medium --- inevitably elicit un frisson of desire.
