Next Wednesday at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), Burke Prize artists Cannupa Hanska Luger, Roberto Lugo, and Jordan Nassar will join together for a panel discussion, moderated by Marianna Schaffer of Creative Capital, to talk about the ways in which craft can become a tool of resistance, protest, sociopolitical commentary, and change.
In her own work, Schaffer strives to cultivate and create relationships, strategies, and outreach for artists. Luger, meanwhile, is a multidisciplinary artist that incorporates ceramics, video, sound, fiber, steel, and cut paper to combine performance with political action, telling stories of 21st century indigeneity. Luger is of Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara, Lakota, Austrian, and Norwegian descent. His work often incorporates calls to action, and he lectures and participates in residencies worldwide. Lugo is a ceramist, social activist, and spoken-word poet who uses porcelain to shed light on “its aristocratic surface with imagery of poverty, inequality, and social and racial injustice.” Nassar works on hand-embroidered textile to “address an intersecting field of language, ethnicity, and the embedded notions of heritage and homeland.” He looks at the conflicting issues of culture and identity using geometric patterning taken from Palestinian and Islamic symbols. Working in so many different fields of art for a similar goal, these artists are sure to present a lively and important discussion not to be missed.
The event is $10 to attend and $8 for members and students, or free if you are a part of the College Art Association. Tickets can be purchased here.
