This is (Not) Craft: Works of Beauty and Meaning|
here is the plan:
I want to organise an exhibition of craft inspired art works, or rather, art work that utilise media traditionally dismissed as craft. I am thinking collage, stamping, textile, beading and jewelery, wearable art, paper craft etc. I am thinking doing it as the first kanguerilla project, inviting each kanguerilla girl to contribute up to 4 works in the exhibition. Works are to be in an art/craft medium and must also carry an artistic/political meaning i.e. they must attempt to say something.
I will organise the gallery space (after feb) and it is my intention that the exhibition be held in a designated gallery space. I know there are some really good non gallery exhibition spaces, particularly cafes ect, but for this project it is important to display the works in a gallery to highlight that they are intended as works of art. I am thinking of a small commercial gallery and I would like to have all works for sale. It is also part of my grand scheme to enlist the help of someone to help us price our works, as I know this is one area in which women often lack confidence.
I am thinking the middle of the year, but it will be dependent on gallery space availability. So at the moment what I am looking for are expressions of interest.
