The exhibition All About Attitude moves away from crafts “by humans, for humans” to concentrate on the equal importance of all the components that make up a craft such as materials, tools, machines, humans and the environment.
The exhibition offers the chance to reflect on both our attitudes towards crafts and the social practices that surround them through an introspective process, an exploration of the human psyche and self-analysis that we can all relate to after living through the pandemic.
A craft is the culmination of many combined elements: people, tools, materials, and products.
The attitude that respects and embraces all things other than human is the new ethics and social practice of crafts in this era. At the same time, this may be the way to restore the existence and value of crafts/artists who have been marginalized and isolated by anthropocene and capitalocene.
