"OBJECTS: REDUX—50 Years of Craft Evolution" curator William Dunn joins Houston Center for Contemporary Craft curator Kathryn Hall for a talk on how 50 years made craft contemporary.

In 1969, the Smithsonian American Art Museum debuted "OBJECTS: USA," a sprawling exhibition featuring 308 craft artists and over 500 objects. The show would travel the United States and Europe, vaulting craft into the contemporary art milieu and forever changing the way we view material culture. Fifty years later, this tribute exhibition incorporates work by artists in the original display alongside historic and contemporary makers who expand upon and complicate the conversation.
