The Form Will Find Its Way: Contemporary Ceramic Sculptural Abstraction
January 22 - March 30, 2019
Katherine E. Nash Gallery
Regis Center for Art | University of Minnesota
Minneapolis, MN

The Katherine E. Nash Gallery presents The Form Will Find Its Way: Contemporary Ceramic Sculptural Abstraction, an international ceramics exhibition organized in association with the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA). Minneapolis-based independent curator Elizabeth Carpenter has invited five international ceramic artists to participate in the exhibition and she has also chosen works by 35 artists who responded to an international juried call. Carpenter’s title for the exhibition and the curatorial premise guiding her choice of artists stemmed from a quotation by Peter Voulkos, an artist who almost single-handedly ushered in an interdisciplinary approach to the ceramic arts through his breakthrough conviction that the fields of painting, sculpture, and pottery could coalesce in works of great power and significance. Carpenter, in turn, explored experimental, cross-disciplinary, and aesthetically diverse artistic practices, with the explicit intention to avoid preconceptions about established categories like art and craft. The Form Will Find Its Way: Contemporary Ceramic Sculptural Abstraction coincides with Claytopia, the 53rd Annual NCECA Conference, which will take place March 27 – 30, 2019 in Minneapolis. The exhibition includes the creation of a new, site-specific clay installation by Dutch artist Alexandra Engelfriet, made possible with support from the Harlan Boss Foundation for the Arts and Continental Clay Company.
