Museum of Arts and Design

Craft was once at the margins of the art world, but no longer. Today it is front and center in art galleries, museums, and fairs, widely recognized for its expressive potential and cultural significance. Assembled from the eclectic richness of MAD’s permanent collection, Craft Front & Center brings together more than 70 iconic and lesser-known works to highlight key thematic touchpoints in craft’s history that have brought us to this moment. Challenging traditional thinking of craft as separate from fine art, the exhibition reveals the field's deep engagement in art’s major movements, such as Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, and Postmodernism, while also launching its own revolutions, particularly the elevation of women and people of color as significant artists.

The Museum of Arts and Design collection comprises over 3,000 artworks in clay, fiber, glass, metal, and wood, dating from the post-war studio craft movement through to contemporary art and design. With an aim to subvert traditional hierarchies in the arts, the collection advocates for the central role of craft in art and society. Toward that end, Craft Front & Center is organized into eight themes exploring craft’s impact. Each section is punctuated with pivotal and rarely seen works from iconic makers, such as Betty Woodman, Marvin Lipofsky, and Magdalena Abakanowicz. The exhibition also casts a fresh eye on craft’s pioneers; celebrating Olga de Amaral, Charles Loloma, Patti Warashina, and others who pushed the boundaries of materials and sought more inclusive sources of inspiration. Showcasing the diversity and expressive power of the handmade as only MAD can, the exhibition affirms craft as one of the most exciting spaces for experimentation and wonder in art today.

EXHIBITION THEMES

Handmade objects are potent receptacles of emotions and memories, infused with human warmth that enliven and enrich the home.

What Can You Do with an Object?
A look back at the seminal exhibition Objects: USA, and the works displayed whose innovations still resonate.

Fiber artists past and present have generated works of amazing complexity and conceptual ingenuity.

“The second half of the 19th century saw a profusion of flamboyant pottery, spurred by the invention in Britain of ‘majolica’ – a new form of earthenware, which took its cues from the maiolica ceramics of Renaissance Italy but which could be produced on an industrial scale. Eccentric designs and vivid, polychrome glazes abounded on both sides of the Atlantic. Bard Graduate Center is hosting the first major survey dedicated to 'Majolica Mania'.”—Apollo Magazine

Who writes a story matters. Texts are not neutral. The racial identities of creators impact the stories they create. Sonja describes two essential factors that guided her writing in Stamped (For Kids), and they are critical for young readers. She addresses the importance of young people having access to books where they’re able to read for truth—the both painful and celebratory history of the United States. And she provides insights on the importance of young people accessing books where they’re able to read for affirmation—where the humanity of people, specifically those who have been oppressed, is affirmed.

DR. SONJA CHERRY-PAUL is the New York Times best-selling author of Stamped (For Kids). She is an educator, author, and the co-founder of the Institute for Racial Equity in Literacy. Sonja is the Director of Diversity and Equity at the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project at Columbia University and the host of The Black Creators Series. She develops curricula that centers the work of racial literacy and culturally-relevant teaching in K-12 schools. Sonja leads presentations at educational conferences and works with educators around the world, providing professional development on antiracist reading and writing instruction.

INSTRUCTOR: BOBBY SANABRIA

Multi-Grammy nominated drummer, percussionist, composer arranger, educator, and radio host Bobby Sanabria guides you on a 4-session journey through the birth, evolution, and future of part of America’s great art form: Latin Jazz! From its roots in East Harlem, to its nurturing in the South Bronx, to the present-day explorations of established and younger artists, you’ll take this special journey with one of the genre’s great masters, learn about this long-neglected branch of the jazz tree, and discover its special connection to our fair city.

Swing U classes will be available to re-watch on-demand up to 7 days after airing.

Please note that a link to access your nightly classes will be found in the confirmation email you receive with your order. Nightly classes do not stream from this page.

PURCHASE BY INDIVIDUAL WEEK • ALL CLASSES 7PM ET

WEEK 1 – NOV 15 – EL BARRIO: THE GENRE’S BIRTHPLACE   REGISTER

By the 1930s, the mass migration to New York’s East Harlem by Puerto Ricans had renamed the neighborhood “El Barrio.” Here the confluence of Puerto Ricans, Cubans, and African Americans would yield exciting musical results found in early groups like the Don Azpiazu’s Havana Casino Orchestra and in bandleaders like Xavier Cugat, Agosto Coen, and others. It would lead to the first band to fully integrate jazz arranging technique, the creativity of the jazz soloist, with the rhythmic complexity of Afro-Cuban percussion: Machito and His Afro-Cubans.

WEEK 2 – NOV 22 – THE UPSTARTS   REGISTER

El Barrio would birth two other great artists who also would become legends in their own right: Tito Puente and Tito Rodriguez. Learn about how these two geniuses contributed to the further evolution of the genre through Maestro Puente’s virtuosity as a percussionist, composer, arranger, and bandleader, and through Maestro Rodriguez’s unique vocal style and powerhouse big band.

WEEK 3 – NOV 29 – BRASIL WITH AN “S”   REGISTER

By the mid 1950s a new approach in Brazilian music was taking the established big band samba tradition in other another direction. It would lead to a more intimate small group approach that would become known as bossa nova. At the same time, the hard bop movement that started in the mid-1950s would influence a new generation of Brazilian musicians like Antonio Adolfo, Airto Moriera, Raul De Souza, Hermeto Pascoal, and many others who would come to our city and change the course of jazz.

WEEK 4 – DEC 6 – THE EXPANSION OF LATIN JAZZ  REGISTER

Learn how Latin jazz has expanded from its early Afro-Cuban/Nuyorican and Brasilian roots to include a kaleidoscope of rhythms from all of Latin America. From established to younger artists who are exploring the canon with styles from Colombia, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, and beyond. And the best part? It’s all happening here in NYC!

Manhattan is so dense and dynamic that you can lose sight of its long history. In a short lecture and discussion, we'll welcome back Manhattan Borough Historian Robert W. Snyder who will describe how big changes in labor and economics, immigration and migration, and the evolution of our island landscape have shaped our own time. We will devote special attention to how the latest Census data and the Covid pandemic reveal new things about our borough and our city.
