Unconventional Clay: Engaged in Change
Nelson Atkins Museum Project Space, Galleries L7 and L8
Free admission, now – June 12, 2016
How is clay being used today in dynamic, interactive, and innovative ways? “Unconventional Clay: Engaged in Chang e” explores connections between clay, art, social issues, and process. Works by 24 artists range from vessels to large scale installations, with artists responding to contemporary issues while employing innovative approaches to the medium. The exhibition will present ways that projection, 3D modeling, video, and advanced materials can be combined in ways that have an aesthetic and intellectual impact irrespective of their size, but rather in the way they engage viewers. “Unconventional Clay” will also investigate the ways that community-oriented artists create projects that address audience interactivity.
