Craft Contemporary’s second clay biennial examines contemporary ceramic practices that use the human figure as the starting point for material and conceptual experimentation. The exhibition presents works from both emerging and established artists that actively challenge traditional notions of representation. Works in the exhibition include sculptural objects, site-specific installations, and performative works.
Exhibition Artists: Alex Anderson, Jenny Hata Blumenfield, Jason Briggs, Cassils, Sharif Farrag, Nicki Green, Phyllis Green, Raven Halfmoon, Roxanne Jackson, Anabel Juarez, Cynthia Lahti, Galia Linn, Cannupa Hanska Luger, Gerardo Monterrubio, Brie Ruais, Anders Herwald Ruhwald, Nicole Seisler, Meghan Smythe, Cammie Staros, Wanxin Zhang, and Bari Ziperstein.
