Allison Smith: A history lesson

6Allison Smith, who might be described as a proactive craft-historian, makes work which deals directly with the role of craft, as she puts it, and its role “in the construction of national identity.” Part object making part historical re-enactment Smith’s work deals in the grey ares between the traditional and the contemporary role of craft practice. She has, as of 2008, joined the sculpture faculty of California College of Art (and Craft) and based on her most recent article in JMC it seems as though she might be confronting a whole new body of local history. Im so interested to see what comes of this!
