This Moment of Rupture
July 9 – August 8, 2021
During “this moment of rupture” with the related crises of the pandemic, racial uprisings, climate change, and economic decline, how have ceramic artists responded? Is there a renewed sense of emotional purpose? Is activism playing a role in contemporary ceramic practice? Artists featured in this exhibition work in an expansive variety of media but that all incorporate ceramics in some way, be it with traditional methods, or with processes such as 3d printing, or as a part of performance art, mixed media and more.
This Moment of Rupture is a juried national survey of contemporary ceramics that showcases a broad spectrum of works that celebrate traditional forms, while also challenging conventional definitions of craft.
This Moment of Rupture artists: Adam Bradley, Jackie Brown, Marianne Chenard, Lauren Chipeur, Hannah Duggan, Lori Katz, Jeff Kell, John Manion, Arny Nadler, Dorothy Patch, Meg Stein, Jessica Teckemeyer, Megan Van Wagoner + Erik Thor Sandberg, Elizabeth West and Ritter Zhang.
