The Burke Prize 2018: The Future of Craft Part 2

The Burke Prize 2018: The Future of Craft Part 2 celebrates the inaugural year of the Burke Prize, an annual award that reinforces MAD’s commitment to championing the next generation of artists working in and advancing the disciplines that shaped the American studio craft movement. The exhibition will feature a selection of works by the winner and finalists of the prize, whose emergent voices are pushing the field forward in dynamic ways and providing a glimpse into the expansive future of contemporary craft. Although each artist’s practice is grounded in one of the core materials of the studio craft movement —glass, fiber, clay, metal, or wood —in today’s interdisciplinary environment they are expanding the field by incorporating unexpected materials and creating conceptual dimension through performance and digital media. Their work is conscious of and engages with space and can be used as a tool of protest and sociopolitical commentary.


The Burke Prize 2018: The Future of Craft Part 2 is curated by MAD’s Assistant Curator Samantha De Tillio and Assistant Manager of Curatorial Affairs Angelik Vizcarrondo-Laboy, with support from Curatorial Assistant Alida Jekabson.
