Philadelphia designer and educator Doug Bucci works with a student in a metals class.
Calling all craft makers and craft connoisseurs: Join us this Wednesday, May 6, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Philadelphia Museum of Art for a discussion about craft in the post-digital age. We’ll be reflecting on the role of 3-D printing in the creative process, and particularly its implications for crafts made by hand.
In their wide-ranging talk “Art and Design in the Postdigital World,” Ron Labaco, Marcia Docter Curator at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), and Doug Bucci, Philadelphia-based designer and educator, will address these and other questions facing contemporary craftspeople.
This free event will be held at the Philadelphia Museum of Art's Van Pelt Auditorium. Tickets can be picked up inside the museum and reserved in advance by calling 215-235-SHOW. Tickets can also be reserved online for a small handling fee. 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.
