Art in the Making

The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design (CCCD) is pleased to announce the second annual Windgate Research and Collections Curator Lecture.In their new book, 'Art in the Making: Artists and their Materials from the Studio to Crowdsourcing', Julia Bryan-Wilson and Glenn Adamson make a series of provocative arguments about contemporary art practice. Noting the longstanding aversion of artists and their representatives to transparent discussion of production, they argue for the importance of process in critical interpretation. In this talk, they will highlight one of the most important, yet least discussed aspects in the making of contemporary art: its economic footprint.A reception will follow the talk at 7:30 pm, including a book signing by Malaprop's.The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. $3-5 suggested donation.Special programming held in conjunction with 'The Future of Fixing', on view at CCCD's Benchspace Gallery & Workshop, September 2, 2016 - January 7, 2017.
