Craft in Contemporary Art Call for Entries

Craft in Contemporary Art Call for Entries

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, February 9, 2020

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.
