Craftsmanship exhibitions in Slovenj Gradec have a rich tradition and are one of the most important events for presenting handmade products. Since the first exhibition of domestic and artistic crafts in 1977, the social, cultural, economic, and environmental conditions have changed significantly. The new edition of the Triennial of Craftsmanship reflects these altered conditions in the field of craft cultures and highlights the relevance of such processes. The exhibition features 38 products selected through a public call for the Triennial of Craftsmanship and Crafts, organized by a consortium of partners, as well as 10 products chosen through a public call for the Integration of Contemporary Design, Craftsmanship, and Crafts, announced within the European platform Distributed Design by the Centre for Creativity. The exhibition contributes to the understanding of the craft sectors in the context of the 21st century’s time and society. It will be on display at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Koroška in Slovenj Gradec until 19 November 2023.
