CALL TO ARTISTS: Seeking Craft Artists for Crafting Contexts Exhibition

CALL TO ARTISTS: Seeking Craft Artists for Crafting Contexts Exhibition

This Deadline Expired: Friday, August 18, 2017

In 2017, Craft NOW Philadelphia presents the theme Fluid Boundaries: Exploring Intersections of Craft with Fine Art, Design and Making to visitors as a means of discovering how craft continues to evolve in the twenty-first century. Expanding on this theme, Art In City Hall issues a call for Crafting Contexts as its fall exhibition in Philadelphia’s historic City Hall. This exhibit will be part of Philadelphia Craft Month celebrated in November. 

Crafting Contexts seeks high quality two and three-dimensional handmade art that invites discourse and interpretation. Using materials or a mix of materials traditionally associated with craft (wood, clay, fiber, glass, metal, etc.) or nontraditional materials (found and upcycled objects, plastics…), artists are encouraged to explore personal or social contexts. This may include presenting craft as a reflection of contemporary issues. For example, it can serve as a critical tool that examines culture, immigration, the environment, current events or institutional traditions. Works can be utilitarian or otherwise, and all works are required to be handmade with the aim of fostering interaction or dialogue.

The application is now an online submission form found on the Call to Artists.
