Each year, CraftNOW hosts a symposium to provide a platform for critical discourse in contemporary craft. CraftNOW’s 2022 symposium will center on the theme Public | Private and explore continually evolving concepts of shared versus personal space. Public | Private offers the opportunity to think about how handmade elements and crafted objects communicate whether architectural space is shared or private, and to explore which processes and aspects of their creative identities artists choose to share with their audiences. As private space becomes increasingly public via omnipresent virtual windows into our homes and studios, we’ll also explore how these lenses have shifted dichotomies of shared and personal space for students, practitioners, educators, and consumers of craft. This year’s Symposium keynote speaker will be Michael J. Lewis, author and architectural critic for The Wall Street Journal.
