Making a Difference: Social and Political Activism in Clay

September 29, 2018 - November 25, 2018

Event Navigation

Making a Difference: Social and Political Activism in Clay brings together a wide range of artists working in clay who directly address current events through their projects. At this moment of political uncertainty and a seeming turn of popular opinion toward negativity, fear, and isolation, we want The Clay Studio to counter these notions using our curatorial platform by amplifying the voices of diverse artists. The documenting publication for this exhibition will be especially powerful at this moment.

Making a Difference will be mounted in The Clay Studio’s 1,400 square foot gallery, in October and November 2018. Participating artists are Participating artists are Ann Agee, Tim Berg & Rebekah Meyers, Sharif Bey, Russell Biles, Mark Burns, Syd Carpenter, Ayumi Horie, Roberto Lugo, Richard Notkin, Mara Superior, Kukuli Velarde, Paula Winokur.

With support from the Center for American Art, The Clay Studio has commissioned short essays from each exhibiting artist, and will produce a professional publication for the show. The publication will also contain a curatorial essay and will stand as a record of art reacting to the current political climate.
