“Active touching, which is called haptics, involves the interpretation of complex spatiotemporal patterns of stimuli that are likely to activate many classes ofmechanoreceptors. Haptics also requires dynamic interactions betweenmotor andsensory signals, which presumably induce sensory responses in central neurons that differ from the responses of the same cells during passive stimulation of the skin.”

happylucky no. 1 is proud to present Haptics, a group exhibition that explores the sensory relationship between the realms of art and craft. Featuring works by Barbara Bertieri, Frid Branham, Kimberly Carmody, Lisa Cooperman, Joetta Maue, and PD Packard, this exhibition provides a cross-section of contemporary artists who use materials associated with craft: clay, thread, dyes and inks, or precious stones. Materials like these require a viewer to deploy sensuality to engage with the work.
