Will 3-D printing replace traditional craft technique, or bring new dimension to the creative process? What does the rise of computer-assisted fabrication mean for crafts made by hand?
Join us Wednesday, May 6, as Ron Labaco, Marcia Docter Curator at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), and Doug Bucci, Philadelphia based designer and educator, discuss these and other questions about the future of craft in their wide-ranging talk “Art and Design in the Postdigital World.” This free event will be held at the Philadelphia Museum of Art's Van Pelt Auditorium from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Free tickets required. Museum admission not required to attend this program.
Labaco was the curator of MAD’s groundbreaking 2013 exhibition, Out of Hand, Materializing the Postdigital. Read more about his thoughts on emerging technology in this 2014 interview with the Brooklyn Rail. Labaco is a juror for the 2015 Craft Show.
