Objects in Flux: Exploring the Boundaries of Craft at MFA (Boston, Massachusetts)

August 25, 2015 - January 10, 2016

This exhibition explores a movement in “flux,” focusing on contemporary craft-based artists who are finding new ways to fully explore their disciplines. Featuring a selection of works from across the landscape of contemporary craft, the exhibition includes more than 30 emerging and established international artists, each of whom embraces and explores the increasingly blurred boundaries between art, craft and design. Looking to a broad range of materials and practices, the exhibition explores important issues including the connection between craft and performance; the role of new tools and materials; and the power of craft to interact with architecture. As the first exhibition of its kind within an encyclopedic museum, Objects in Flux offers the opportunity to examine these works in proximity to historical examples in the MFA’s renowned collection. Featuring a variety of loans and new acquisitions, the exhibition demonstrates the vitality and viability of choosing skilled craft for contemporary artistic practice. An illustrated publication will accompany the exhibition.
