In 2016, the LOEWE FOUNDATION launched the international annual LOEWE Craft Prize to showcase and celebrate newness, excellence and artistic merit in modern craftsmanship.
Aiming to acknowledge the importance of craft in today’s culture and recognise artisans whose talent, vision and will to innovate will set a standard for the future; LOEWE Creative Director Jonathan Anderson conceived the initiative inspired by LOEWE’s beginnings as a craft cooperative in 1846. Featuring the nominees of the 2018 edition, this exhibition seeks to reflect the merits of modern craftsmanship. The imagination, diversity, and techniques on display will attest to the crucial role artisans have in the ongoing construction of cultural heritage.
