Craft+Conflict  Highlights Contemporary Craft Tour 2018

DatesTues 13 November - Wed 21 November 2018 
Time: 10am to 4pm
Price: FREE ADMISSION

In the year of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One, Highlights Contemporary Craft tour addresses the pertinent theme of conflict, which affects our communities locally, nationally and internationally.  In rural environments issues of conservation versus agriculture and industry, of rewilding versus farming are often in the news.  In the global environment the devastating effect of war on individuals and communities and culture and the subsequent refugee crisis; and finally, conflicts in relationships and families, personal and professional. 

Our artists are carefully selected to bring you the most exciting work being made on the contemporary art scene in the UK and abroad.  They include:

  • Conrad Atkinson - Ceramic Land Mine
  • Paul Scott - Cumbrian Blue(s) Ceramics
  • Mark Gibbs - Mixed Media Sculptures
  • Mujahid Abu Aljoud - Film
  • Sumi Perera - Mixed Media Assemblages
  • Laura Moreton-Griffiths - Canvas Weapon Replicas and Film
  • Elisabeth Turrell - Enamel and Mixed Media
  • Morwenna Catt - Textile Installation
  • Eva Mileusnic - Ceramic Installation
  • Rhiannon Lewando - Earthenware and Porcelain
  • Mathew Day - The Sculptural potential of prosthetic limbs
  • Johanna Tornqvist - Project Precious Trash

For the first time, we will also be collaborating with Aileen Brindle of  ‘f.o.a.k’ who has worked in the international craft sector for over 30 years. Together we have curated a collection of global handmade design connected to the theme of craft and conflict. This will include work from refugees affected by conflict supported by the UNHCR MADE51 programme.
