VIRTUAL: Crafting Resilience: Activism and Overcoming Obstacles


Ceramic artist Roberto Lugo and curator Michelle Millar Fisher both use their creative platforms to address and expose social inequities. A self-described “ghetto potter,” Lugo speaks often of what the pottery wheel can teach us about resilience and overcoming obstacles, even tagging one wheel with the resounding message that “this machine kills hate.” Fisher navigates the world of craft as a curator, activist, and educator, spearheading initiatives like the Art+Museum Transparency Salary spreadsheet to advocate for equitable labor practices in the field. Join Lugo, Assistant Professor at Tyler School of Art, and Fisher, the Ronald C. and Anita L. Wornick Curator of Contemporary Decorative Arts at the MFA Boston, for a conversation about efforts to diversify and envision resilient futures for the fields of art, craft, and design.
