Event Summary

ASU Art Museum presents “Crafting Resistance,” a look at the ways in which we understand and view the term craft and its relationship to fine art.

The exhibition seeks to flatten the western European art historical cannon and hierarchy and unhinge the binary that often places ‘fine art’ and ‘craft’ at odds with one another. Artists in the exhibition utilize materials and modes of production that are often relegated to what is historically viewed as craft, mediums such as glass, textile, felt, miniature, and wood, and instrumentalize them to make commentary about some of today’s most pressing issues, including climate catastrophe, representation, geo-politics, and migration.
