NeoCraft

Modernity and the Crafts

Edited by Sandra Alfondy. Text by Grace Cochrane, Elizabeth Cumming, Tanya Harrod, Janice Helland, David Howard, David Howes, Love Jönsson, Beverly Lemire, Joseph McBrinn, Bruce Metcalf, B. Lynne Milgram, Alla Myzelev, John Potvin, Mike Press, Larry Shiner.

The crafts have long occupied a marginal role in Modernist discourse. Neo Craft challenges this assumption with a wide selection of scholarly essays exploring the historical and contemporary positions that the crafts hold within visual culture. This volume is divided into five central themes, the last of which, Craft, the Senses and New Technologies, envisions an innovative future for the crafts. Drawing on their scholarship in the fields of craft history, art history, philosophy, museum studies, anthropology, fashion theory, history, women’s studies and design, an international group of leading scholars, craftspeople and curators--including Grace Cochrane, Elizabeth Cumming, Tanya Harrod, Janice Helland, David Howard, David Howes, Love Jönsson, Beverly Lemire, Joseph McBrinn, Bruce Metcalf, B. Lynne Milgram, Alla Myzelev, John Potvin, Mike Press and Larry Shiner--are brought together to contextualize the cultural, political and economic issues facing the crafts today.
