Clay Studio Exhibition Project Coordinator – Making Place Matter

Clay Studio Exhibition Project Coordinator – Making Place Matter

This Deadline Expired: Monday, February 17, 2020

Project Overview:

Making Place Matter will be an ambitious and experimental exhibition, symposium and publication that will inaugurate The Clay Studio’s (TCS) newly built home in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia, set to open in Spring 2021. As TCS begins this new chapter in its own history, the idea of ‘place’ takes on critical importance as we seek to understand and grow into our new home. Building a resonant conversation between clay, artists and audiences in our new gallery, Making Place Matter will be organized around the complex meanings of place in our contemporary social conversation.

As a new member of a culturally rich neighborhood that is experiencing the challenges of rapid growth, The Clay Studio must work to demonstrate our commitment to being a positive force within this changing environment. We are responsible to our existing community, and to the local, national, and international art spheres as a place to experience the best of ceramic art. With this project we have the opportunity to thoughtfully advance our methodological approach to reflect the founding principle of The Clay Studio: collaboration and creative expression.

Engaging community members in the planning and implementation of Making Place Matter (and future exhibitions), is integral to forming a robust long-term relationship. As such, we will develop an Exhibition Council for Making Place Matter, bringing together the voices of many constituent groups. This widely encompassing Council will design and create programming for a Visitor Engagement Gallery adjacent to the main gallery. Visitors will have the opportunity to respond through art making activities designed to connect their own ideas of place to the exhibition, and interact with Kukuli Hatch, Ibrahim Said, and Kukuli Velarde during each artist’s short residency in the Visitor Engagement Gallery.

What elevates his work from mere craftsmanship is his visionary outlook. Rearranging objects and incorporating an iconography of myths, fairy tales, and personal idiosyncrasies, Warren Muller exudes an envious agility.  Motion, change and improvisation are implied like a glimpse of chaos captured and frozen for a split-second.
