RAW Curator Tour

Thu March 19, 2020, 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join Chief Curator Sequoia Miller for a special tour of the exhibition RAW. Miller will discuss how the artists in the exhibition are innovating with the ancient medium of clay to explore themes of identity, cultural memory, ecology, and others. The tour will end with an optional hands-on experience working with raw clay.

About the exhibition

Raw clay is emerging as a compelling medium for contemporary art, taking on new relevance as conversations around identity, visibility, and survival on our planet develop. From sticky and wet to dry and powdery, raw clay speaks to primal themes like the land, the body, and memory. Four new installations by leading artists working with unfired clay—Cassils, Magdolene Dykstra, Azza El Siddique, and Linda Swanson—invite you to discover new possibilities in an ancient medium. Learn more
