Making Otherwise: Craft and Material Fluency in Contemporary Art. Curated by Heather Anderson Cambridge Galleries, Cambridge, ON, 2015; Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery, Halifax, NS, 2015; Carleton University Art Gallery, 2014.
Today, there is an increasing permeability between the realms of “craft” and “art” occurring in step with an emphasis on “reskilling” and the handmade, as seen in contemporary art practice and in the widespread interest in all things handcrafted. Making Otherwise presents the work of six Canadian artists who merge the material and conceptual approaches of craft and art: Richard Boulet (Edmonton), Ursula Johnson (Eskasoni, NS), Marc Courtemanche (L’Ange-Gardien, QC), Paul Mathieu (Vancouver), Sarah Maloney (Halifax), and Janet Morton (Guelph). Drawing on their fluency in ceramics, basket weaving, furniture making, stitchery, bronze casting, woodworking, and knitting, these artists think through materials, forms, and ideas to make things differently or “otherwise.”
