Nexus: Meetings at the Edge – Downloadable Publication


The exhibition ‘NEXUS: Meetings at the Edge’ looked at some of the ways in which 21st-century artists and makers are changing preconceptions about their art forms

Jewellery, silversmithing, textiles and ceramics all have long histories and deep-rooted traditions behind them. Today their familiar, often restricting, boundaries are being expanded by makers taking leaps of imagination and devising fresh approaches to the way they work.

Curated by Dr Elizabeth Goring for Fife Contemporary in collaboration with Ruthin Craft Centre, Wales, the exhibition featured 20 artists from around Britain and Ireland.
