Site:Brooklyn - Craft in Contemporary Art
By SiteBrooklyn – Brooklyn, New York, United States

International Deadline: February 3, 2020 – Site:Brooklyn is calling for artist entries for our upcoming juried exhibition.

The marriage of craft and art-making is one of humanity’s earliest moments. From the Neolithic period onwards, textiles, metals, glass, stone, and other materials were laboriously and carefully woven into images and figures, marking the intersecting and complex paths of commerce, religious and domestic life, and the arts. The Industrial Revolution begin the mass manufacture of textiles, making them available to ever larger swaths of society. These materials and methods have been increasingly integrated into the fine arts, creating a flourishing and exciting conjunction. What is the place, and future of craft in contemporary art? Site:Brooklyn is looking to answer this question, with works that range across all styles and mediums.

On display March 20, 2020– April 18, 2020.

This is a juried exhibition for artists working across all mediums. This exhibition is open to all artists 18 years of age or older.

She is Assistant Curator at the Museum of Arts and Design, where her upcoming exhibition Beth Lipman: Collective Elegy (May 14, 2020 to March 28, 2021) is the artist’s first midcareer survey. She is also a Contributing Editor for GLASS: The UrbanGlass Art Quarterly and her ongoing personal research includes the first in-depth study of the life and fiber sculpture of Dorian Zachai (1932-2015).
