Radical Craft: Re-imagining Crochet
September 29, 2014

A giant coral forest crocheted out of wool and plastic trash; a life-sized crochet reproduction of a mountain lion; undulating playspaces handicrafted from tons of nylon fiber. Crochet has long since burst traditional boundaries and established itself as a sculptural medium. Here, artists at the forefront of a new ‘radical craft’ movement discuss how crochet can open unexpected paths to imagining and being in the world. The event is presented in conjunction with the NYUAD Institute’s exhibition of the Crochet Coral Reef.
