Event description

Description

In a discussion with Jeffrey Gibson on his use of traditional craft techniques, he noted that work “often referred to as kitsch, novelty, or decorative can actually have deep inherent content that is representative of conflict and attempts at resolution.” This tour will explore craft as a strategy used by Gibson and Nep Sidhu to navigate past and present traumas, offer space for resilience or reconciliation, and propose future trajectories of healing.

Registration recommended. Opens Wednesday 11 September, 11AM
