Stephen Benwell, Kim Jaeger, Tessy King, Noriko Nakamura, Kirsten Perry, Jessilla Rogers, Mark Whalen

Curated by Sigourney Jacks

5 - 29 October 2016
Opening night Thursday 6 October, 6-8pm

 

CONTEMPOTTERY will highlight the influence of the forms, functions and aesthetic conventions of traditional pottery that are present in the work of contemporary ceramicists and artists. The subject matter in work will be varied, a pastiche of references: classical kraters and aryballas, funerary masks, the Nude and mythological sculptures and figurines: a confluence of varied traditional techniques and conventions.
