New Craft - Future Voices
Invites Proposals

Deadline: September 28, 2006

The international conference New Craft - Future Voices invites exhibition proposals that reflect the diversity of contemporary craft. In particular, proposals that demonstrate the range of spheres where craft is located, for example, material based craft, the craft of writing, designing spacecraft or the craft of medicine and science. The exhibition aims to reflect new contexts for interpretation of craft as a contemporary phenomenon.

Craft can be interpreted as the craft practitioner, craft processes and practice and or the crafted object. Proposals concerning craft as education and/or processes are particularly welcome.

The exhibition will be connected to the conference and will provide a window on contemporary craft, a focus for discussion, an indicator of quality in craft and a visual means of articulating the issues that need to be addressed.

Proposals can come from individuals and or groups, and could consider for example new forms of craft, new collaborations, new forms of patronage, new contexts for interpretation of craft and new ways in which digital media and technology can enhance the communication of craft.

A maximum of 5 images can be submitted as part of an exhibition proposal, in jpeg (72 dpi) format.

Available Facilities

The exhibition will be located primarily in, The Cooper Gallery, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, Perth Road, Dundee. There is also some scope for proposals that utilise the outdoors. Depending on space approximately 25 proposals will be accepted.
