Lauren Kalman & Matthew Lambert

Curatorial Fellowship


Desire Paths looks at makers both within the discourse of craft and ones that exist on the periphery of the craftscape who focus on the movement of the body towards something desirable. These desires of the body are in relationship to: nature, tech, self, and society. Using architectural theory and queer curatorial strategies,Desire Paths will examine the possibilities and futures of bodies, revealing connections between the corporeal and craft.

Matt Lambert holds an MFA in Metalsmithing from Cranbrook Academy of Art and a BFA in Metalsmithing, Printmaking and Ceramics as well as studying Psychology, Art History and American Studies at Wayne State University in Detroit Michigan. Lambert has contributed to Metalsmith Magazine, Norwegian Craft, Art Jewelry Forum and the forthcoming 2019 Athens Jewelry Week text. Currently Lambert is an MA candidate at Warren Wilson College in Critical and Historical Craft researching the relationship of craft to nation-state structure through nomadism and fixity using a queer/intersectional perspective.
