Entanglements presents artworks by Cheryl L’Hirondelle, Meryl McMaster, Sasha Phipps and The Macronauts. Together they explore stories of ecological change and entangled perspectives – of vulnerable and troubled spaces, people, and species, bound in a series of evolving relationships.

Considering the relationship of art, architecture and craft in process

This exhibition explores the collaborations between architecture studio, artists and crafts people in the design and construction of the Mingei Museum in Sand Diego. Jennifer Luce and her design studio collaborated extensively with a number of artists and crafts people to create custom elements for the museum. These works combine both analogue and digital technologies and explore the potential or even necessity of collaboration in the design and production.

This discussion brings together artist, scholar and Director of Creating Knowing and Sharing: The Arts and Cultures of First Nations at the Canada Council for the Arts, Steven Loft; craft historian Sandra Alfoldy; architect Tom Bessai; and fashion designer, Valerie Lamontagne, to consider the way we talk about making. Which terms do you we use to describe what is done now? Some reach back to claim connection to European traditions of craft while others search for new broadly inclusive language. What is important in staking a claim on terms and definitions? How do we facilitate constructive and inclusive conversations about making?
