Namita Gupta WiggersPresented by: Ceramics Program, Office for the Arts at Harvard

We are pleased to welcome Namita Gupta Wiggers to the Ceramics Program for this free lecture.

Which Craft? 
Namita Gupta Wiggers has focused for the past two decades on craft: first as a maker, then as a curator, writer, and educator; and now as director of the MA in Critical and Historical Craft Studies at Warren Wilson College, the first low-residency graduate program in the US to focus on this emerging field. How do these various roles in the craftscape come together around a single question -- which craft? Wiggers will share how her professional experiences contribute to the creation of this new program, and what shifted to enable the study of craft history and theory today. Wiggers is the former Director and Chief Curator, Museum of Contemporary Craft, and the Director and Co-Founder of Critical Craft Forum
