As part of its 10th anniversary, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC) presents Crafting Live(s), the first alumni exhibition of its Artist Residency Program. This show celebrates the relatively short, yet rich, history of the program, which was the motivating force behind the institution’s founding in 2001.
Approximately 35 former artists-in-residence chose to participate in the exhibition, working with guest curator Keelin Burrows, Windgate Charitable Foundation Curatorial Fellow at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. For the show, the former residents were encouraged to create new work reflecting their current creative practices and body of work. Some artists created pieces that reflect upon their experiences as residents at HCCC and others will present objects made in the past two years that are representative of their current method of making.
The tour will be led by guest curator Keelin Burrows with selected artists featured in the exhibition. The exhibition is on view through September 3.
