Craft gets a deep dive at the MAD Museum with Studio Views: Craft in the Expanded Field. This bold show, which is part exhibition and part studio residency, uses immersive and large-scale installations to push the boundaries of craft and explain what’s inside the artists’ heads.

Running now through January 7, 2018, four alumni of the Museum’s Artist Studios Program—Xenobia Bailey, Maria Hupfield, LJ Roberts and Sarah Zapata—return to MAD for two “micro-residencies” with two artists working in the gallery at a time. The artists will present research materials, drawings and studio experiments that offer a deeper view into their processes.
