TATUM was started in January 2013 by Canadian visual artist Danielle Hogan as part of her doctoral arts-based research into the aesthetic of craft in contemporary Canadian art at the University of New Brunswick. Craft’s unique cultural contexts, regional diversity and the feminist history inherent in the very practice of craft demonstrates the language of craft to be a central process and aesthetic from which to comment on and critique complex issues surrounding personal politics, national identities and regionally specific currency. The blog http://www.tatumproject.wordpress.com is part of that process.
The roots of craft are global, and TATUM is hoping to receive pictures and stories from far and wide; TATUM is interested to hear about your work and that of those you know whether it is simple or ornate, rustic or cosmopolitan. TATUM is interested in it all, so send a ‘friend’ request on Facebook. We would love to see what you are up to!
