Melting Point: Movements in Contemporary Clay, is the CAFAM‘s first clay biennial and focuses on artistic practices that are currently expanding the conceptual, aesthetic, and sociopolitical potential of the ceramic object. Melting Point presents works from both emerging and established artists that push traditional processes of working with clay and question pre-conceived definitions of the ceramic object. These artists choose to work with clay for its technical, conceptual, and metaphoric possibilities and capitalize on clay’s versatility along with the countless glazes and firing techniques available—often viewing the clay, glaze, or kiln as a collaborator in their process. Works in the exhibition include sculptural objects, site-specific installations, and performative works. Curated by Holly Jerger, CAFAM exhibitions curator, and Andres Payan, CAFAM curator of public engagement. Melting Point will be on view, January 28 through May 16, 2018.
