Coming Together: Culturally Inspired Creation Talk by Judy Frater
April 14, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDTFree
Judy Frater, spring 2022 interdisciplinary artist-in-residence, will talk about the residency and upcoming exhibition Coming Together: Culturally Inspired Creation. During the residency, students learned about value and the importance of hand craft and sustainability. In India, sustainable hand craft livelihoods are threatened by undervaluation. Each year artisans leave craft because it does not offer adequate income or recognition. Based on their experiences in the course, the students are producing an exhibition that presents their co-designed textiles inspired by textiles in the HLATC collections. Can they bring an audience to craft by creating value for it and encourage more sustainable lifestyles? This talk is organized by the Center for South Asia, a residency sponsor.
