‘Craft Crossroads’ includes artworks that reclaim knowledge, labor, and skills that have been historically marginalized to challenge power structures and hegemonic value judgements.
Together, they complicate the distinctions between so-called high art and popular culture, insisting on the centrality of craft.
In the installation La cama, as seen above, a bedspread is covered with capias, mementos gifted on important occasions such as weddings and baptisms.
This work is a tribute to Juana Hernández, the woman who served as spiritual guide and caretaker to Osorio throughout his childhood.
