Call for Papers – Public | Private Symposium
This Deadline Expired: Wednesday, August 31, 2022
CraftNOW Philadelphia seeks at least four emerging craft scholars and practitioners to present during its annual symposium November 11, 2022. Please email up to 200 words and a brief CV for consideration no later than August 31, 2022 to firstname.lastname@example.org
An honorarium will be provided for each presenter. This segment of our hybrid in-person and virtual event is being sponsored by the Decorative Arts Trust.
CraftNOW’s 2022 symposium and programming will center on the theme Public | Private and explore continually evolving concepts of shared versus personal space. Public | Private offers the opportunity to think about how handmade elements and crafted objects communicate whether architectural space is shared or private, and to explore which processes and aspects of their creative identities artists choose to share with their audiences. As private space becomes increasingly public via omnipresent virtual windows into our homes and studios, we’ll also explore how these lenses have shifted dichotomies of shared and personal space for students, practitioners, educators, and consumers of craft.
The keynote speaker will be Michael Lewis, architectural critic for the Wall Street Journal and author of Philadelphia Builds: Essays on Architecture, Frank Furness: Architecture and the Violent Mind, and City of Refuge. Other presenting institutions will include Craft in America, The Center for Art in Wood, Wharton Esherick Museum, varying divisions of the Philadelphia Mummers Parade, among many others.
