Abstract (English)

Aiming at a thorough, more nuanced understanding of contemporary crafts, these proceedings from a conference held in 1997 groups together 16 papers (out of the 24 which were presented) in which anthropologists, ethnologists and craftspeople explore similarities between crafts, architecture and the decorative arts. Also discussed is the meaning-inducing relationship between the design process, building or making methods and materials. Additional essays by persons in charge of museum collections, and a case study of the Fuji Pavilion in the Montreal Botanical Garden. Includes lists of recipients of two crafts awards. Brief biographical notes on authors. Circa 180 bibl. ref.

Résumé

Visant une compréhension approfondie et plus nuancée des métiers d'arts contemporains, ces actes d'un colloque tenu en 1997 regroupent 16 communications (sur 24 présentées) dans lesquelles anthropologues, ethnologues et artisans explorent les affinités entre les métiers d'art, l'architecture et les arts décoratifs. On aborde également la relation qui s'établit entre le processus de conception, les méthodes de fabrication et les matériaux. Aux textes des précédents spécialistes s'ajoutent ceux de responsables de collections muséales, ainsi qu'un essai sur le pavillon Fuji du Jardin botanique de Montréal. Inclut les listes des récipiendaires de deux prix des métiers d'art. Brèves notices biographiques sur les auteurs. Circa 180 réf. bibl.
