Architecture and Ceramics: A Material for the Ages
October 31 – December 17
Architecture and ceramics are fundamental cultural forms. Both share a central concern with formal issues such as scale, the relationship between inside and outside, and the containment of space. And both engage the physical together with the philosophical, encompassing both a building or artifact and the ideas it embodies. The kinship between architecture and ceramics draws upon the physical materials they use and the formal and conceptual problems they address. Ultimately, however, what binds them together is their shared connection with human use, and human life—and art. This photographic exhibition illuminates the rich and complex relationship between architecture and ceramics from the ancient world to the present featuring works by major architects Antoni Gaudí, Louis Sullivan, Raymond Hood, Carlo Scarpa, Oscar Niemeyer, and Renzo Piano, as well as artists Robert Arneson, Nino Caruso, Bill Daley, Nina Hole, Charles Simonds, and Betty Woodman.
