Material Domestication

Museum of Craft and Design

Material Domestication will feature the work of six contemporary artists who utilize disparate cultural backgrounds as a framework for sculptural explorations invested in skill, material and identity. This exhibition is an investigation of materiality and technique based on slow production and repetitive making. These practices are often rooted in the notion of craft as women's work. Typical processes include needlework, knitting, weaving and other historical fiber based techniques. Modular components are stacked, folded, knitted or woven into existence by these artists.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock has to say about Material Domestication :

This group exhibition promises to challenge conventional notions of gender in craft, to create an inclusive environment and to attempt to dismantle binary gender identity, specifically the notion of craft as women’s work. The artist names had yet to be confirmed as of this printing, but I am intrigued by the notion of large-scale works made from repetition.
