In recent years, artists have begun exploring the medium of unfired clay in startlingly new and original ways. From sticky and wet to dry and powdery, raw clay has the power to transform its physical state while transmitting deep connections to primal themes like the land, sentience, the body, and memory.

RAW features four new installations by leading artists working with unfired clay: Cassils, Magdolene Dykstra, Azza El Siddique, and Linda Swanson. The artworks’ physical forms will change over the course of the exhibition’s run. RAW invites viewers to see, hear, smell, and possibly feel raw clay as a time-based medium in the hand of today’s artists.
