As part of Brisbane Art and Design, join Curator Sarah Engledow, for a free intimate tour of works by historic and contemporary ceramic makers. Sarah will share insights into the practices of six contemporary artists and reflect on the unique dichotomy of the functional and conceptual ceramic.
Clay: Collected Ceramics is a celebration of ceramics from two collections: Museum of Brisbane’s and Kylie Johnson’s. It is accompanied by Commune, a display of single pieces contributed by more than 300 makers responding to MoB’s largest community callout to date.
With pieces spanning 60 years of creativity, including fresh works never before displayed, Clay sparks a conversation about the relationship between potters and their visions. From functional wares of the 1970s to conceptual creations by iconoclastic makers of today, this exhibition will speak of the meaningful processes of making and collecting.
