THURSDAY 24 MARCH, 6.30 - 7.30PM
Glenn Adamson Senior Scholar at the Yale Center for British Art and formerly Head of Research at the V&A and Director of the Museum of Arts in New York talks about his new book Craft; an American History.
The talk, will examine the role played by craftspeople; ‘the quiet heroes of the American story.’ Adamson will also discuss the influence of craftspeople from Britain who migrated across the Atlantic and reflect on how, as craft has become increasingly marginalised in modern Western economies, overall levels of social cohesion have also deteriorated and thus how important it is to this day.
