Exhibition: Resurgence — Opens
October 10–November 6
Resurgence showcases the ingenuity of artisan work and hand-crafted objects from textiles, jewelry, and decorative accessories. Contributors to this show include FIT alumni, faculty, and students, as well as finalists from the 2022 Global Eco Artisan Awards, a recognition given by the AGAATI Foundation. The unique pieces highlight FIT’s hands-on curriculum and represent how mastering artisanship can lead to successful entrepreneurship. Many of the Global Eco Artisan finalists are informally trained artisans who learned their expertise through generations of family or regional craft practices. The exhibition celebrates the diversity of craft from around the globe and displays the unique way that artists master technique, material, and design.
The exhibition is curated by Nomi Kleinman, chair of Textile/Surface Design, in collaboration with Sarah Mullins, chair of Footwear and Accessories Design, and the AGAATI Foundation, a nonprofit committed to celebrating creativity and artisan-made craft.
The contributors from the FIT community are drawn from Footwear and Accessories Design, Jewelry Design, and Textile/Surface Design departments. The AGAATI Foundation organizes and sponsors the Global Eco Artisan Awards.
