On Thursday, March 31, 2022, Her Royal Highness Hereditary Grand Duchess Stephanie of Luxembourg visited the immersive art and fine crafts exhibition entitled, CRAFT 3.0: The Extension of the Gesture, held at the 1535° Creative Hub in Differdange, Luxembourg. The exhibition was organized by the De Mains de Maîtres Luxembourg, an association whose mission is to sustain the commitment to creators and craftsmen.
According to a press release from AALT Stadhus, the purpose of the exhibition is to:
“…question various Luxembourg and European players in the fields of artistic craftsmanship and new so-called additive technologies, in order to glimpse the tremendous interest that there may be tomorrow in bringing together and combining these old and new skills. Beyond the eternal debate between tradition and progress, it clearly appears today that digital techniques are not intended to oppose the gesture or to make it disappear, but can on the contrary prove to be a great way to extend it, or even increase it!
The exhibition aims to explore the current and future shift from secular gestures toward a new craft nourished and enriched by digital techniques. CRAFT 3.0 offers the visitor a didactic journey dealing with both an inventory of art crafts today and a projection into a digital future that questions the world of creation more than ever.”
CRAFT 3.0: The Extension of the Gesture will be open to the public until June 26, 2022. For more information please click here.
