CraftPerspectives Lecture: Garth Clark

How Envy Killed the Crafts Movement: An Autopsy in Two Parts

“With characteristic humor, Clark’s lecture surveys the past 150 years… Arguing that the desire for parity with the fine arts by artists, crafters (as Clark prefers), collectors, academia and institutions created the demise of the movement itself, Clark expresses concern that nostalgia and envy plague an aging community. As a result, he wryly quips, success is measured by escape from the ‘penitentiary’ of craft into the ‘nirvana’ of the art world. Instead of seeking a bridge to the fine arts, Clark advocates re-unification with design.”
