In accordance with the announcement by the provincial government, the Gardiner Museum has closed temporarily, effective Monday November 23. While this news is difficult, the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and the wider community remains our top priority. We'll continue to provide you with engaging digital content to keep us connected while the galleries are closed.
During our temporary closure, we're posting exhibitions and selections from our collection online. Discover Inuit ceramics, Chinese and Japanese porcelain, pottery from the Ancient Americas, and more!
In accordance with instructions from the provincial government, the Museum closed to the public on Monday November 28 and we have cancelled all clay classes. We regret the inconvenience this may cause, but are hopeful that these actions will help maintain the health and safety of our communities. We will automatically be crediting students with a refund for remaining sessions.
Every object in our permanent collection can be accessed through our eMuseum portal. Learn about individual collecting areas, like Italian Maiolica or Modern and Contemporary Ceramics, or search the full collection by keyword. You'll be amazed by what you discover!
With the Museum closed temporarily, we need your support to continue to offer innovative and engaging exhibitions, programs, and community projects online, as well as plan for the future. Please consider making a donation to help us build community with clay.
Toronto-based sculptor Nurielle Stern presents a response to the exhibition Ai Weiwei: Unbroken. Displayed in a case outside the entrance to the exhibition, these smaller-scale ceramic sculptures reflect on the grand scope of the themes of Ai Weiwei’s works by focusing on the intimacy of a daily studio practice.
About the Artist
Nurielle Stern is an emerging artist and a graduate of Alfred University’s renowned MFA program in Ceramic Art (New York, USA). Her works are saturated with texture and vibrant glazes, giving them a hyper-real quality. Stern makes tangible a fictional world of her own imagining creating things that are at once strange and familiar.
