Reskilling

English

Theme:
Questions of “know-how,” “skill,” and “technique” have resurfaced in artistic discourse. Many practices are revisiting applied arts—ceramics, textiles, glass, etc.—, transgressing boundaries between craft, design, and contemporary art and disrupting normative values associated with such hierarchical categories. This issue will examine significant transformations that have resulted from this exploration of traditional media and the revival of the “well-made” object.
