Guest lecture by Melissa Hilliard Potter, Interdisciplinary artist, writer, and curator
For several decades, women have been the vanguard combining craft and activism. This history is growing with current scholarship featuring diverse practitioners who combine craft practices—ranging from hand papermaking, to glass, and weaving—with community efforts such as domestic abuse survivorship, overcoming war trauma, and micro-industry development. In this talk, Potter will discuss case studies from her personal experience including her co-curated exhibition, Social Paper: Hand Papermaking in the Context of Socially Engaged Art and collaborations with women artisans in Bosnia and Republic of Georgia. This lecture is in conjunction with the Collecting Craft exhibition at the Brunnier Art Museum.
