History and culture play an important role in the materials artists choose to create their artwork. In this talk, Museum educator Michael McMahon will explore how an artistโ€™s choice of a particular medium informs both the limitations and freedoms they have when creating a new artwork. By looking at the traditional and the innovative materials used by painter Brenda Kingery and the artists of the Interwoven: Contemporary Basketry exhibition, the talk will explore how available materials can inspire and constrain the artistic process and offer a glimpse into the creative origins of art as it relates to a place and its people. Drawing upon his research and knowledge as an artist and educator, Michael will offer a unique perspective on how these artists find their place within the expansive range of contemporary art being created today.
