Objects in Flux
Contemporary art in craft media presents a profusion of paradoxes. It bridges ancient traditions and state-of-the-art technologies, cutting-edge concepts and enduring tenets about skilled making, and in so doing blurs previously assumed lines between craft and art, design, and architecture. This pioneering publication brings together work by nearly forty international artists, whose varied approaches are not only pushing but redefining the boundaries of what we consider craft today. Author and museum curator Emily Zilber investigates the role of new tools and materials, the connection between craft and performance, and the power of craft’s interactions with space as seen in these stunning and surprising objects in flux.
