Craftivism. Dissident Objects and Subversive Forms
Shepparton Art Museum
24 November 2018 - 17 February 2019
Featuring: Karen Black, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran, Hiromi Tango and Jemima Wyman
Craftivism presents the work of 18 contemporary Australian artists who utilise craft-based materials with a political intent. Broadening our understanding of craft-making traditions, the artists in this exhibition subvert and extend these forms into the realm of activism and social change, reflecting on the world in which we live. Drawing on a long historical lineage, the exhibition enables viewers to rethink craft in a new light.
