Keepsakes of Conflict: Contemporary Craft’s Role in Understanding Trench Art

Thursday, June 27 - 6:00 PM

TMM LECTURE SERIES featuring Julia Krueger

What might it mean to physically and visibly transform a machine-made object meant for the battlefield into a handmade souvenir-type object for the home? Keepsakes of Conflict researcher and craft historian Julia Krueger will explore this question while sharing other insights and stories associated with the exhibition. The presentation will begin with the definition of trench art used by curator Heather Smith and Krueger and continue with a discussion on craft and the handmade. Specific objects included in the show will be used to illustrate important stylistic influences and unique characteristics found within these objects.

Organized by Founders’ Gallery in cooperation with TMM Lecture Series

Doors open 6:00 (light refreshments);  Introductory talk in the TMM Theatre and tour of the gallery 7:00 – 8:00
