Namita Gupta Wiggers has been the curator, Museum of Contemporary Craft/PNCA since 2004. Her curatorial practice combines experience as a museum educator, graduate studies in contemporary art, theory, and post-colonialism, user-based design research for a product design company, and years as a studio art jeweler. She particularly relishes collaborations with anyone who wants to explore exhibitions as unique spatial, cultural and educational environments to investigate questions and ideas. She has written several books, essays and articles on contemporary craft. Whenever possible, she works to disrupt the silos of art, craft and design. Using examples of museum projects that investigate craft x design, she will share her current obsesssions: restructuring the curator’s toolkit and rethinking the Museum of the 21st Century. And she knows that designers in Portland are up to the challenge.
