In 2014, the Manitoba Craft Council (MCC) and the Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library (MCML) are teaming up to present Backspace Forward, a Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Craft. As the title suggests, work included in Backspace Forward will play in the interstices of time, drawing on historical craft traditions and techniques and teasing out their relevance and potential for contemporary art and craft making. Anchoring the exhibition are 12 historical works from the Museum’s collection – pieces selected by MCC/MCML members through an online voting process in December 2013.
Craft artists and artisans of Manitoba are invited to use one (or more) of these craft works as a springboard for your own creative production in the coming months. Click here to find images and descriptions of the works. You can click on any image to enlarge it.
