Contemporary Craft’s Role in Understanding Trench Art: What might it mean to physically and visibly transform machine made ammunition into a clearly handmade object that is meant for the home rather than the battle field? Keepsakes of Conflict researcher and craft historian Julia Krueger will explore this question while sharing other insights and stories associated with the exhibition. The presentation will begin with the definition of trench art used by curator Heather Smith and Krueger and continue with an exploration of the major themes found within the exhibition. Specific objects included in the show will be used to illustrate important stylistic influences and unique characteristics found within these objects.
