Build your Own: Tools for Sharing opens tomorrow at FACT in Liverpool and we can’t wait to see it. An exhibition curated by Clare Cumberlidge (Thirteen Ways) and Lauren Parker, it will explore the relationship between craft, digital technologies and community. As they explain: “Though seemingly occupying very different spaces the processes of making through craft or technology share common ground – connected through the use of tools and the ethos of sharing.”
The exhibition includes a series of new creative commissions by artists, craftspeople and technologists who are all working with different communities to propose new models of production. It will include works by Linda Brothwell, DoES Liverpool, Rachel Rayns with the Raspberry Pi Foundation, and Will Shannon and Assemble.
The exhibition is a partnership between FACT and the Crafts Council, and will also tour to Norwich Castle City Museum & Art Gallery
