A term coined by Anne Wilson at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, “sloppy craft” is described by craft theorist Glenn Adamson as the “unkempt” product of a “post-disciplinary craft education.”
Join Anne Wilson, Wilson’s former student Josh Faught (University of Oregon), Nan Curtis (Pacific Northwest College of Art), local artist Jessica Jackson Hutchins and Namita Gupta Wiggers to discuss this rising—and controversial—approach to conceptual craft practice.
This conversation takes place in preparation for a related exhibition co-curated by Josh Faught, assistant professor and program coordinator of fibers, University of Oregon; and Namita Gupta Wiggers, curator, Museum of Contemporary Craft. Sloppy Craft is scheduled to exhibit at the Museum during the 2010–2011 exhibition season.
