Description

Poster for 'Industry of One: Designer Makers in Britain 1981-2001', a Crafts Council touring exhibition held at the Crafts Council Gallery, 44a Pentonville Road, London, from 1 February to 25 March 2001, then toured regionally. In his review of this exhibition curated by David Redhead, Jeremy Myerson said that it argued for 'a rethink of what really constitutes the crafts and for a more holistic and cross-cultural view of designing and making while remaining true to the traditional craft focus on materials' and asked 'questions not just about how political economy drives the material content of objects for the home, but also about how we should define crafts in the future'. The poster was designed by Angus Hyland, Pentagram.
