(Un) Intended at the John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design
Emerging makers and staff from The School of Art, Architecture and Design present work in the historic setting of St Botolph without Aldgate. Drawing on the rich social context of the church, the work will give insight into craft as process and it's essential role in human connection
Continuing their established history for collaboration and social inclusion, these two London institutions present an exhibition of new work by some of the most thought provoking makers in contemporary craft.
Through their individual processes the artists highlight the often-overlooked ability of craft to provide solace for both the maker and viewer. Churches have historically provided comfort and protection to those who need it most. Bringing together space, place and object, [Un]intended reflects on their individual and combined power in providing agency.
Focusing on process rather than fully resolved artefacts, the artists allow the onlooker a journey into the hinterland of their practice. The exhibition will show a body of work from inspiration, through exploration to selected completed works, thus offering a perspective on craft and its role within society.
