Craftivism. Dissident objects and subversive forms

17 May 2019 - 21 Jul 2019

Shepparton Art Museum / NETS Touring Exhibition

Craftivism. Dissident Objects and Subversive Forms presents the work of 17 contemporary Australian artists who utilise craft based materialities with a political intent. Broadening our understanding of craft-making traditions, the artists in this exhibition subvert and extend these forms into the realm of activism and social change, reflecting on the world in which we live.

Artists: Catherine Bell, Karen Black, Penny Byrne, Erub Arts, Debris Facility, Starlie Geikie, Michelle Hamer, Kate Just, Deborah Kelly, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran, Raquel Ormella, Slow Art Collective, Tai Snaith, Hiromi Tango, James Tylor, Jemima Wyman and Paul Yore.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body, as well as receiving development assistance from NETS Victoria’s Exhibition Development Fund, supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.

Craftivism. Dissident Objects and Subversive Forms is a NETS Victoria and SAM touring exhibition. Curated by Anna Briers and Rebecca Coates.
