Dust to Digital: Loose Remarks on the Economy of Craft
Wednesday, December 10, 2014 at 7PM
Theater

Curator Dieter Roelstraete will discuss wide-ranging practices invested in the notion of craft, and the relationship of these practices to issues such as time and materiality. Roelstraete’s recent exhibition for the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, entitled The Way of the Shovel: Art as Archaeology, traced the interest in history, archaeology, and archival research through the art production of the last decade. It also considered art and archaeology’s shared approaches to issues such as material, time, process, performance, and liveness.

Dieter Roelstraete is Manilow Senior Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, where he recently organized Goshka Macuga: Exhibit, A (2012), The Way of the Shovel: Art as Archaeology (2013), and Simon Starling: Metamorphology (2014).
