Do exhibitions emerge from publications or do exhibitions lead to one or multiple publications? What questions about artefacts, social habits or storytelling are primary in the mind of the curator who moves between addressing contemporary audiences and the responsibilities of communication for a future beyond our own?

Ezra Shales savors the productive confusion that lies at the intersection of design, craft, and art in everyday life. His most recent book, The Shape of Craft (2017), prompted a reviewer to identify him as a "philosopher of the factory floor". He teaches the history of design and craft at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
