Dislodging Your Creative DNA: Artist Amanda Browder at the Dumbo Arts Festival

IMG_5027SM

Amanda Browder’s work, just like herself, is not shy. One of the self proclaimed ‘local loudmouths’ of the art podcast Bad at Sports, she is not afraid to get boisterous. She is mostly known for her large scale fabric installations which usually take over entire structures at a time (residential houses, trucks, music festivals etc.). During Dumbo Art Festival, I was fighting through the crowds on Front Street while simultaneously trying to navigate googlemaps to Old Dock Street, when Browder’s installation jutted out of the mayhem with incredible intensity.

An Unexpected Catalyst: The GI Bill

Screen shot 2011-08-24 at 12.55.19 PM

One of the early catalysts of the Studio Craft Movement came from an unexpected source: the US Government. The financial stability of teaching gave many artists opportunity to develop their own work. Many of the artists whose work is represented in the show (including Robert Rauschenberg, William Parry, Ramona Solberg, Peter Voulkos) were veterans who benefited both from the support of the GI bill and academia. This influx of some two million veteran students led to the rapid creation and expansion of programs in ceramics, fiber, metal, and wood around the country.

Go slow, reach fast: Using the Archives of American Art

Screen shot 2011-08-18 at 5.14.35 PM

There's a Zen comment that I don't know what they call these things in their philosophy, but the comment was, "Go slow, reach fast."
