Materializing Resistance: Gender, Politics, and Craft

Date: 
Friday, April 12, 2019 - 12:00pm to Saturday, April 13, 2019 - 5:00pm

Much recent scholarship has stressed the critical potential of craft, frequently utilizing feminist and queer methodologies to address the ways in which craft engages issues of gender. This symposium explores how the politics of craft are framed, preserved, deconstructed, revised, and reimagined today, and how artists deploy the unique properties of their chosen materials to resist gender binaries and hierarchies.

This work investigates spaces and objects most often overlooked but serve specific roles in our daily routines. I am fascinated by the clues they can offer to the more complete context of how a space is used by an individual.

In Shadows - Tate Foley

Tate Foley's work explores human relationships through the filter of accessibility to these resources.

Artist's Statement

When equal access is available to the entire society, social progress and collaboration can flourish. All too often, however, small contingencies of the populace seize and restrict these avenues of access for personal gain. Meanwhile, a growing segment of the population has been stripped of this accessibility, turning what could have been a keystone into a wedge.
