Thrown Together: RAW

Sat May 02, 2020, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This special RAW event combines artist talks, panels, clay demonstrations, and exhibition tours led by artists Magdolene Dykstra, Azza El Siddique, and Linda Swanson.

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
