THAT CONTINUOUS THING: ARTISTS AND THE CERAMICS STUDIO, 1920 – TODAY
TATE ST. IVES
31 March – 03 September 2017

 

Explore 100 years of studio pottery with over 80 works from more than 50 artists from Europe, Japan and North America. This exhibition looks at the rise of studio pottery in the early 20th century to today and how a new generation of UK based artists are looking again at ideas of art and craft. Highlights include ceramics from studio potters Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada, shining a spotlight on the relationship between Japan and the UK from the 1910s to 40s. Discover the Californian ‘clay revolution’ of the 1950s and 60s, showcasing sculptures from Peter Voulkos, Ken Price, Rudy Autio and Ron Nagle, alongside a new commission by contemporary British artist Jesse Wine.

Discover the work of the leading ceramic artists working in the UK during the 1970s and 80’s. Selected with artist Aaron Angell, these include artworks by Gillian Lowdnes, Richard Slee and other contemporaries of the hand-built movement, which saw the potter’s wheel cast aside. These will be shown alongside work by a number artists – including Anthea Hamilton – made over the last three years at Angell’s London-based Troy Town Art Pottery, which he describes as ‘a radical and psychedelic workshop for artists’.

Angell will be undertaking a residency at Leach Pottery, concluding the exhibition in the location where our story began. Supported by the Victoria and Albert Museum, Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation, The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, Japan Foundation and Idlewild Trust
