Matter at Hand – Workshop & Lecture with Tracy Krumm
Tracy Krumm, the McKnight Visual Artist Fellow and director of artistic advancement at the Textile Center in Minneapolis, will offer a workshop from 9 to 11:50 a.m. in 085 Design, ground floor of the College of Design, followed by a lecture from 12:10 to 1 p.m. in 077 Design.
Krumm’s work integrates hand-constructed textile processes with found materials and forged steel to comment on labor, identity, human connectivity and cultural production. Her current work investigates the intersection of creative experience, simultaneous occurrence and transformation. The manipulation of form through low- and high-tech processes, along with explorations in material studies, are at the core of her research.
Krumm’s visit is cosponsored by the Department of Art and Visual Culture, CODAC (College of Design Art Club) and the College of Design.
