Museum of Contemporary Craft - Artist/Art Historian Conversation

Call + Response: Craft Conversation- Rob Slifkin (Art and Humanities, Reed College) & Studio Gorm (Product Design, University of Oregon)

Saturday, July 25, 1 pm. Free and open to the public.

The Lab at Museum Of Contemporary Craft. 724 Northwest Davis Street, Portland.

The dynamic, open conversations between eight artist/art historian pairs are the core of the project Call + Response, currently on view at Museum of Contemporary Craft. In the months leading up to the exhibition, each pair, comprised of two faculty members from colleges and universities in Oregon, spent extended time exchanging ideas about craft and process. Each art historian then wrote an original, critical essay about his or her paired artist – now presented as an integral part of the Museum exhibition.

In the first of a series of three public discussions, hear Rob Slifkin, an art historian from Reed College and Studio Gorm, a product design team from University of Oregon, describe the writing and studio works they contributed to Call + Response, as well as their collaborative processes leading up to the final museum presentation.
