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.
