Both hailing from small towns in America, Caitlin Rose Sweet and Ben Pinder make work which simultaneously embraces Americana and folk traditions while exposing the social constructs (and constraints) surrounding them. We will explore the fascinating work they produce and join them in a discussion on how they are poking holes and piercing through American myths of masculinity, gender and labor, and craft and art, in an attempt to level hierarchies and detoxify beliefs.  (Recorded October 24)
