Museum of Contemporary Craft welcomes Hannah B. Higgins for “The Multiple Intelligences of Fluxus,” a CraftPerspectives Lecture in conjunction with Object Focus: The Book. The CraftPerspectives Series provides a forum for today’s leading artists, designers, scholars and curators to share their knowledge and pose important questions on issues in contemporary craft.

Commonly associated with political and cultural activism in the 1960s, the Fluxus Movement struggled against narrow definitions of art and performance. Hannah B. Higgins, the daughter of the Fluxus artists Alison Knowles and Dick Higgins and noted author of Fluxus Experience, will lecture on this movement to provide an additional context for one of the themes engaged in Object Focus: The Book.

UPDATE: Hannah’s lecture has been canceled due to severe weather conditions.
