In the making, a group exhibition of Alberta College of Art + Design alumni, investigates conceptual intersections between contemporary craft and emerging digital media. The works span a diverse range of disciplines—photography, performance, video and sound installation, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry and glass—and reflect the ongoing influence of technology on ways of making and ways of thinking about the contemporary context.
In its title, In the Making alludes to the ongoing process of invention in both handwork and emerging technologies. The exhibition aims to highlight a diverse range of related research and practice produced recently by artists who are interested in inventing new ways to think about the world through processes of making, regardless of discipline. Perhaps more than ever, interdisciplinary and post-studio art production has lead contemporary artists to demonstrate that making is thinking, and together they not only reflect, but affect the direction of society.
