En Español: Historia del arte desde casa: Haciendo Sabiendo, Artesanía en el arte, 1950–2019

FRI, Mar 5, 2021
12 pm

Online, via Zoom

Explora cómo artistas han utilizado materiales, métodos y estrategias en prácticas artesanales para desafiar estructuras de poder que tradicionalmente determinan el valor artístico y para también reclamar los lenguajes visuales que normalmente se han codificado como femeninos, domésticos o vernáculos. Estudiaremos como artistas amplían técnicas con historias ancestrales, como el tejido, la costura o la cerámica, mientras que otros experimentan con textiles, hilo, arcilla, abalorios y vidrio, entre otros medios. Discutiremos obras de artistas como Ruth Asawa, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Simone Leigh, y Pepón Osorio.

Camilo Godoy es un artista y educador radicado en Nueva York. Es candidato de maestría en arte en Columbia University y enseña en Recess y el Whitney Museum. 

Explore how artists have used the materials, methods, and strategies of craft to challenge the power structures that determine artistic value and reclaim visual languages that have typically been coded as feminine, domestic, or vernacular. Some expand techniques with long histories, such as weaving, sewing, or pottery, while others experiment with textiles, thread, clay, beads, and glass, among other mediums. Featured artists include Ruth Asawa, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Simone Leigh, and Pepón Osorio.

Camilo Godoy is an artist and educator based in New York. He is an MFA candidate at Columbia University and teaches at Recess and the Whitney Museum.
