A memorandum is a communication that aids the memory by recording events or observations on a topic. Memoranda are agreements, reminders, plans that refer to the past to inform the future. Through the exhibition Memoranda (2011), curators Tessa Peters and Janice West contend that craft objects offer an excellent opportunity to study the transfer or recreation of memory through artefacts. Innovative artworks by contemporary makers interrogated the complex ideas that objects can carry.
