MATERIALS IN THE HANDS OF ARTISTS: JOSH FAUGHT, RAMOKEN O’ARWISTERS, ANNABETH ROSEN – A PANEL DISCUSSION
Saturday, December 14, 2019, 2:00 pm
In recent years, craft-based practitioners have been tapping conventions and overturning expectations of the artistic range of traditional materials such as clay and fiber. Three Bay Area artists—Josh Faught, Ramekon O’Arwisters and Annabeth Rosen—are in the forefront of these contemporary experimental and conceptual methodologies that extend beyond historical forms such as vessels and tapestries. Maintaining a commitment to the labor of making by hand, their works go beyond personal expression to encompass collective sensibilities and desires—from cultural expressions to natural forms. For the Materials in the Hands of Artists: A Panel Discussion, these three extraordinary artists will present on their work and engage in a conversation about materiality and repetition, the tension between cognitive and intuitive systems of thinking and feeling, and the politics of labor and visibility of process in sculptural art.
