The Craftswomen

(Monday) (Thursday)

MFA Fine Arts presents "The Craftswomen," curated by current student Sarah Malekzadeh. The show will be held at the SVA Flatiron Project Space, 133/141 West 21st Street from Monday, March 5, through Thursday, March 29, with an opening reception on Thursday, March 15, from 6:00 – 8:00pm.When an artwork is described as craft-like, it is often as an attempt to diminish it or pay less for it, as craft-making is usually the arena of women. We are experiencing a craft renaissance, with women demanding to be taken seriously via the techniques and materials passed down from their female relatives and distant ancestors."The Craftswomen" will showcase a diverse range of bold, unapologetic craft. Handmade dolls hang from balloons, naturally dyed indigenous garments are used in a risk-taking performance, quilts become paintings and yarn is baked into bread. Despite their vast differences in materials and execution, each artist in this show inherently has something to say about womanhood by alluding to craft. The diversity in "The Craftswomen" is a testament to the enduring traditions and the exciting future possibilities of craft as an art form that is treated with the respect it deserves.Artists: Isabel Llugano, Dana Robinson, Alicia Smith and Shannon StovallMFA Fine Arts presents "The Craftswomen," curated by current student Sarah Malekzadeh.
