Tradition Interrupted
On view through September 25, 2022
Katonah Museum of Art
Katonah, NY

The artists of “Tradition Interrupted” merge age-old media and technique with innovation, and re-vision culturally historic ideas to create new work that interrupts traditional practice but still collaborates with the past. For generations, traditional craft and art practices held steadfastly and often visually defined a culture. Today, artists are unraveling certain traits and facets of these ancient customs to redefine or reclaim them for the contemporary world.
