Material Culture will showcase unique art objects by contemporary artisans, outsider and fine art artists using craft media. Craft is personal, political and powerful, bringing to the table a different perspective, self empowered and emotive. This exhibition questions mindless consumerism turning to the artisan/artist to provide context as we delve into the human desire for material things. Included are the exquisite bronze works of master sculptor, Taal Mayon; bold ceramic percussion instruments – the creations of ceramist Rei Yao; and acclaimed textile artist Xenobia Bailey who will present her canvas sails titled Tall Ship Sails of Mystical Mothership, Material Culture, sponsored by the Bronx Council on the Arts, was co-curated by Lisa Curran and Juanita Lanzo.
