Abstract (English)

A multidisciplinary collection of papers illustrating the diversity of discourse on contemporary craft from a symposium including makers, curators and teachers. Reaffirming the distinction between art and craft, Halpin summarises the presentations by suggesting they represent a move in craft discourse away from the language of art criticism, which fails to appreciate its particular qualities. Texts in English with French abstracts. Texts by M. Cheff and M. Paradis in French with English abstracts. Biographical notes on contributors. 180 bibl. ref.

Résumé

Ce recueil multidisciplinaire d’articles découlant d’un symposium qui réunissait praticiens, commissaires et enseignants, illustre la diversité des discours portant sur les métiers d’art contemporains. Réaffirmant la différence entre l’art et les métiers d’art, Halpin résume la teneur des conférences en suggérant qu’elles dénotent une rupture avec langage de la critique d’art, qui ne peut rendre compte des qualités distinctes des métiers d’art. Textes en anglais avec résumés en français. Textes de M. Cheff et de M. Paradis en français avec résumés en anglais. Notices biographiques des conférenciers et collaborateurs. 180 réf. bibl.
