BODY: exploration of the human figure in clay

Posted June 27, 2010

Curating and showing at SURFACE LIBRARY Gallery, June 11 — July 5th, 2010.


Representations of the human figure in clay are as old as ceramics itself - more than 13,000 years of world history. ‘Body’, as curated by Matt Nolen, is an exhibition of contemporary ceramics by 6 New York artists providing diverse interpretations of figuration: vessel as metaphor, social and political commentary, depictions of heaven and hell, microscopic forms, body as shelter, oral obsessions and the culture of desire, arousal and consumption are just a few of the themes found in this exhibition.
