Materiality and craft methodologies feature prominently in the object-based works of the four artists comprising Materially speaking. Ranging from emerging to senior practitioners, the artists employ traditional and non-traditional craft methodologies while working in clay, paper, textiles (including non-woven vinyl), bronze and glass. Their works foreground questions of labour, craft, skill and value while demonstrating how objects embody meaning and can speak to contemporary issues and narratives.

The four artists presented in Materially speaking, explore diverse notions of hybridity, identity, the body and perception. While conceptually very different, all borrow from craft processes to address ideas of history, functionality and materiality.

The exhibition brochure includes an essay by Nicole Burisch.

ARTISTS’ ACCOMMODATION GENEROUSLY PROVIDED BY SHERATON VANCOUVER AIRPORT HOTEL.
