Fair Trade: Material Matters is an ongoing project, a combination of traditional drawn, hand-stitched work and a web-based community of artists. Launched in 2007 at the 2nd Moscow Biennale, it depicts artists self-portraits, collected, and stitched onto blankets. The Fair Trade exchange is a deliberate comment on the financial value placed on work, which is often not as beneficial to the artist. Material Matters relates to the process of Slow Making, the basis of Frost's work, exploring the process of making in the context of sustainable actions.
At the opening there will be opportunity to draw your self-portrait and be included in this international artists web site.
