Quote of Note | Lowery Stokes Sims

artisan

“Despite [an] explosion of interest in and fostering of artisan skills, there is still a paucity of recognition of the individual hands of artisans in the rest of the world. While a product might be fitted with an identifying tag or label attached, little effort is made to identify, codify, and promote individual skill sets and styles. The anonymity that still tends to accompany the largely female-based global artisan and craft classes speaks clearly of the lack of diversity and accessibility to recognition that these creators are yet to attain in the global art market….Whether one agrees with the ‘rules of the game’ that govern the global art market, it is clear, however, that equality of opportunity and recognition for such craftswomen and artisans depends on the promotion of individual style and personality.”

-Lowery Stokes Sims, chief curator of the Museum of Arts and Design, on the state of international craft and its implications for the future of the field in The Brooklyn Rail
