Museum of Contemporary Crafts

Tue, 2016-08-30 13:06 -- Don Ball

The exhibition "The Design and Crafts of Prosthetics" will explore the visceral relationship between design, material, and the human body. The exhibition (presenting approximately 50 objects, sketches, and videos, and considers both traditional artificial limbs and a broad range of physical and aesthetic human enhancements and wearable technology) will include public programming, an online publication, supplemental web-based media including podcasts and videos, and a parallel exhibit featuring design works by students responding to themes in the exhibition. The exhibition and activities will coincide with the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
