Event description

Description

Material practice in Craft and Design

During Melbourne Design Week, RMIT School of Art and NGV will co-present a free public forum discussing the rationale underpinning practice and theory in contemporary craft and design.

A panel of speakers will frame a discussion on three key questions: Who are the makers of craft; what are the technologies of craft; could a material situationist perspective offer a contemporary theory and practice of craft?

The presentation will examine how makers and researches use practice, theory and material knowledge to critically probe possible futures or suggest alternatives to what already exists, providing leadership within the rapidly changing international field of craft and design.

SPEAKERS INCLUDE
Maree Clarke, multi-disciplinary artist and designer
Mark Edgoose, RMIT School of Art, craftsperson and artist
Julie Ewington, Independent writer, curator and broadcaster
Kevin Murray, Managing Editor of Garland Magazine, curator and writer
Vipoo Srivilasa, Contemporary ceramic artist

CONVENOR
