Andrew Baseman, Curator
Co-curator Andrew Baseman's extensive personal collection was presented side by side at the fair with works by contemporary artists who intentionally use repair techniques. He explains, “my collection of Make-Do’s is made up of broken pieces that were repaired in inventive ways.” Read more in Baseman's article "On the Mend," in the current issue (Vol. 44, No. 1 - Sustainability) of Studio Potter.
