CRAFT VS. ART, MASCULINITY VS. FEMININITY, SEXUALITY, LABOR, DOMESTICITY, RACE…
Please join us for a fun, artsy, and intellectual event where we reconceive queer women’s historical and current participation in craftmaking. An intergenerational panel will examine the binaries and paradigms that shape mainstream thinking around this art form.
Finally, we will consider the present queer feminist crafts movement and map future directions. The panel will be moderated by Masha Rotfeld.
