Erik Scollon: Upending Ceramic Traditions (Tuesday Night Lecture Series)
Start Date: 11/28/2017Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 11/28/2017End Time: 6:00 PM
Event Description:
Erik Scollon takes on the histories and traditions of ceramics by reworking the techniques of blue and white porcelain, upending our associations with the color saturated world of ceramic hobby glazes, and by creating performative and participatory projects centered on ceramics or ceramic objects. By moving from porcelain to stoneware, high fire to low fire, functional to sculptural, object oriented to performance, he investigates issues of taste, class, gender, and queerness.

Tuesday Night Lecture Series:
An acclaimed weekly lecture series brings in artists, designers, and critical theorists from around the world, broadening the students’ experiential base and complementing local offerings. All lectures and exhibitions are open to the general public free of charge. Unless otherwise indicated, all presentations will be held in the Art Building, Room #133, from 5-6pm.
