Craft as Contemporary Art@Banff Centre
The Craft as Contemporary Art residency took place from November 04 – December 06, 2019 and brought together a group of artists to explore what it means to create art using materials and processes associated with practices of craft. Contemporary art continues to make room for and popularize ceramics, textiles, hand-making, decoration and materiality. This program investigated how these disciplines and approaches are being activated and considered the ideas craft is being asked to communicate.
