Radical Craft is an exhibition currently on tour throughout the UK, today marking its last day at Oriel Davies in Wales. (A lovely gallery, free to visit, worth a look if you’re ever in that area.)
It’s off next to Beecroft Gallery in Southend opening 10th September 2016. After that it will be making the rounds to: Scunthorpe, Carlisle, West Kilbride, Aberystwyth and Dorset. (All venues free!)
The display is a strong one showing a diverse range of work. More established artists such as Judith Scott, contextualise the theme of this exhibition while artists such as Joanna Simpson and her Good Luck Gum Nut Folk (as seen above) showcase the practice of today’s contemporary makers.
Definitely worth a visit, for more info on the tour and dates, look no further than here on Craftspace’s website. (One of the fantastic organisations behind this exhibition. You should definitely keep an eye on what they do.)
