Garth Clark presents "How Envy Killed the Crafts Movement: An Autopsy in Two Parts" at Pacific Northwest College of Art, Swigert Commons. One of craft's most influential intellectuals, this is a special opportunity to hear and discuss Clark's provocative ideas about the state of American craft today. The event is free and open to the public.
Clark will first present a paper examining how aesthetics, economics and art envy have "killed" the crafts movement. A strong proponent of open discourse, Clark will then facilitate an extended conversation with the audience.
