Naked Craft at An Lanntair
From: 15/04/2017 To: 03/06/2017 10:00 - 17:00
Location: An Lanntair, Kenneth Street, Stornoway, Isle of Lewis HS1 2DS
The exhibition comprises work of 22 contemporary, professional makers from Canada and Scotland and covers and broad spectrum of media including ceramic, glass, jewellery, metalwork, textile and wood.
Craft traditions connect Canada and Scotland and share a sense of northern identity. This exhibition highlights some of these craft traditions and heritage, helping to define our own identities and cultures.
It strips back ideas of craft to four themes that bridge past and present, old and new Scotland, traditional and changing ideas. These, in turn, focus on discipline, theory, concepts and methods. It is a novel and timely approach to the production and use of craft from a historical and contemporary perspective.
The makers’ work is split into the themes Do It Yourself: DIY, Down and Dirty: Politics and Materials, New Positions and Tooling Up: New Technologies and Economies.
In addition to the exhibition, there is a range of workshops and talks to attend.
The exhibition will be on display at An Lanntair from Saturday 15 April to Saturday 3 June 2017.
