Art History From Home: Making Knowing
Explore how artists have used the materials, methods, and strategies of craft to challenge the power structures that determine artistic value and reclaim visual languages that have typically been coded as feminine, domestic, or vernacular. Some expand techniques with long histories, such as weaving, sewing, or pottery, while others experiment with textiles, thread, clay, beads, and glass, among other mediums. Featured artists include Mike Kelley, Miriam Schapiro, Marie Watt, and LaToya Ruby Frazier.

Grant Johnson is a Ph.D. candidate in the department of art history at the University of Southern California and a Joan Tisch Teaching Fellow at the Whitney. His dissertation, Sheila Hicks: Weaving to the World, traces the first critical history of the prolific American artist, weaver, and pioneer of global contemporary art. An active curator, critic, and writer, he has published work in Artforum, Frieze, The Brooklyn Rail, Garage, and Performa magazine, where he was a writer-in-residence from 2012 to 2014.
