Celebrate the opening of “Melting Point: Movements in Contemporary Clay.”

CAFAM‘s first clay biennial focuses on artistic practices that are currently expanding the conceptual, aesthetic, and sociopolitical potential of the ceramic object. «Melting Point» presents works from both emerging and established artists that push traditional processes of working with clay and question pre-conceived definitions of the ceramic object. These artists choose to work with clay for its technical, conceptual, and metaphoric possibilities and capitalize on clay’s versatility along with the countless glazes and firing techniques available—often viewing the clay, glaze, or kiln as a collaborator in their process. Works in the exhibition include sculptural objects, site-specific installations, and performative works. Curated by Holly Jerger, CAFAM exhibitions curator, and Andres Payan, CAFAM curator of public engagement.

Exhibition artists: Brian Benfer, Susannah Biondo-Gemmell, Ling Chun, Armando Cortes, Patsy Cox, Julia Haft-Candell, Stanton Hunter, Kahlil Irving, Trevor King, Jennifer Ling Datchuk, Linda Lopez, Walter S McConnell, Ben Medansky, Jonathan Mess, Kristen Morgin, Wayne Perry, Jami Porter Lara, Brian Rochefort, Tony Sonnenberg, Emily Sudd, Cheryl Ann Thomas, and Matt Wedel.

This exhibition is funded in part by The Boardman Family Foundation; the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs; and the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, with in-kind support from Laguna Clay Company.

$12 entry / free for members.
