TALK: Wrong end of the stick? The muddied waters between craft, design and fine art – what is the difference and does it matter
Saturday 13 July 2019
Ever since man sat on a log or made a basket or made a bark painting, wood has been the material which man has relied on for both poetic expression and utilitarian function. In this discussion between three of its greatest proponents – Grant Gibson, former Editor of Crafts Magazine; Emma O’Kelly, Editor-at-large of Wallpaper Magazine; and Christopher Kurtz, one of America’s foremost sculptors in wood – discuss the ever muddied waters between craft, design and art – what is the difference and does it matter?.
This event marks the opening of Christopher Kurtz’s solo exhibition here at Messums Wiltshire.
