Objectspace's crafty plans

From Standing Room Only, 3:52 pm on 20 December 2015

A big push against technology, stress and mass production has seen the rise of movements like slow cooking, adult colouring, and the demand for handmade and bespoke arts and crafts. Craft remains a loaded work in the art world, but Auckland's Objectspace is this country's only public gallery dedicated to exhibiting craft, applied arts and design. The gallery's new director Kim Paton has big plans to take Objectspace into new territory. She's keen to push innovation and that includes the way work is exhibited and the kind of work being commissioned.
