“Working with Artists Working in Fiber”

Bellevue Art Museum’s, Stefano Catalani will speak about BAM’s recent projects and collaborations with artists who work in fiber at the upcoming Surface Matters Symposium on March 3, 2012.

Catalani’s talk will focus on the selected works and installations taking us on the journey from their inception—in the artist’s intention—to their realization, coming to life in their final presentation in the museum galleries.

An Italian native, Catalani relocated to Seattle in 2001. His classics and humanities studies provided him with a strong theoretical background in art history and philosophy. In 2005, he joined the Bellevue Arts Museum as Curator and in 2010 was appointed by Bellevue Arts Museum as the Director of Curatorial Affairs/Artistic Dirctor.  Catalani focuses on “craft as a cultural signifier,” stressing the social implications of craft.
