Craft-Tech: Panel Discussion

10 February 2022 -

Contributors: Laurie Britton Newell (Chair), Lilah Fowler, Jahday Ford & Eva Rothschild

To coincide with the New Contemporaries exhibition at South London Gallery, the Craft-tech programme investigated the relationships between craft and technology. Many contemporary artists utilise various craft practices, often in a reappraisal of traditional methods, imbuing them with technological, industrial and digital processes in experimental and innovative ways.

Craft-tech reflected on how technology is used in craft processes to enhance or even replace hand-based techniques; create synergies between practices, disciplines and media; question ideas around production; and explore the evolving place of craft in contemporary visual art contexts.
