Crafting a Difference at SoShiro is a physical exhibition of innovative craftsmanship housed in a beautiful Marylebone townhouse. A virtual version of the exhibition will be launched on the 18th January and will run until the 2nd April.
Five London-based contemporary craft and visual arts galleries have forged an unprecedented relationship to bring together an ambitiously diverse selection of work in early 2021. ‘Crafting a Difference’ at SoShiro gallery, is a positively defiant act of coming together at a time when so many have been forced apart.
The exhibition is the brainchild of curator Brian Kennedy: “The craft sector has been hit hard by the pandemic, yet it’s also been a very creative time for many makers, artists and gallerists. For ‘Crafting a Difference’, not only do we have makers from Kenya, France, Spain, Japan, Argentina, China, UK, USA, Italy, Ireland, Egypt, Brazil, Scandinavia, Chile, Korea, Iceland, Vietnam, but a wide mix of materials and methods are being explored. Our intention is clear: to illustrate that now, more than ever, the process of creation, is undeniably a deep-rooted, unifying force.”
Work in ceramics, wood, glass, metals, textiles, and paper by over seventy-five artists will be exhibited across four floors of the Georgian townhouse, that is SoShiro. The lower floors feature work in the context of a gallery space, whereas the top two floors display pieces in the context of a residential interior.
‘In-person’ exhibit appointments at SoShiro will be available once government guidelines allow.
