Scutelliphily Saskatchewan Craft Council Gallery, 813 Broadway Avenue, Saskatoon, SK Exhibition Dates: April 8 – May 13, 2017 Reception: Friday, May 12, 7 - 9 pm Panel Discussion: Saturday, May 13, 2 pm Curated by sculptor and curator Zoë Schneider, the exhibition Scutelliphily explores the popularity and meaning of artist-made patches. Patches, machine-made and hand-made, are seeing resurgence in youth culture, connecting wearers and makers through pop-culture, politics, activism and DIY culture. Artists from Alberta, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, and Saskatchewan are participating in this group exhibition which includes beadwork, embroidery, felting, and silkscreen techniques. Patches are textural and symbolic objects. The making of patches through embroidery and other domestic textile techniques draws on and adds to the history of Craftivism: a political art movement focused on anti-capitalism, environmentalism and feminism.
