MJ Tyson, Form & Concept

MJ Tyson, The Attic (2019), reconstructed jewelry

Form & Concept, 435 S. Guadalupe St., 505-780.8312, formandconcept.center

In 1969, the Smithsonian American Art Museum launched the major craft-centered exhibition, Objects: USA, marking a milestone in the history of the craft movement. Craft, traditionally viewed as distinct from fine art, then took its place alongside other contemporary art forms, changing the conversation around art. Form & Concept pays tribute to the original Smithsonian exhibition with Objects: Redux — 50 Years of Craft Evolution, which features more than 70 artworks by seminal artists from the original exhibition, as well as pieces by craft artists working today. A traveling show that premiered at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft in 2019, Objects: Redux expands the concept to include works by local and regional craft-oriented artists. The show opens with a 5 p.m. reception on Friday, Jan. 31 (through March 27), and curator Kathryn Hall gives a free talk on the exhibition at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 1.
