Museum of Contemporary Craft
724 Northwest Davis Street
This week sees the beginning of Manuf®actured: The Conspicious Transformation of Everyday Objects, an exhibition exploring how artists are taking mass manufactured objects and transforming them by hand to create art.
Presented by the Museum of Contemporary Craft, the exhibition will feature works from a wide variety of disciplines, including work by 17 artists from the U.S, England, France and the Netherlands.
Drawing on Marcel Duchamp's concept of the "readymade" - art objects created from found objects - the exhibition is set to push boundaries of traditional craft, attempting to provide a fuller understanding of materiality and making, by focusing on pieces which operate simultaneously as art, craft and design.
Exhibitors include: Cat Chow, Sonya Clark, Mitra, Fabian, Hella Jongerius, Livia Marin, Régis Mayot, Devorah Sperber, Jason Rogenes, Laura Splan, Marcel Wanders and Dominic Wilcox.
