Foosaner Art Museum Presents - InCiteful Clay: The Artist Provocateur

Saturday, February 22 at 10:30 a.m. in the Harris Community Auditorium, Free with Admission

A visual lecture by curator Judith S. Schwartz, Ph. D., New York University

Clay has long played an important role as an artistic medium for the expression of cultural values and ideas related to history and life. Most recently, it has become an extraordinary material that pushes boundaries beyond the decorative and functional to the rendering of powerful statements about time and place.

Dr. Schwartz's lecture will be an introduction to the exhibition, InCiteful Clay which continues the dialog started with her research for the book "Confrontational Ceramics", which included 230 artists from over 30 countries.

InCiteful Clay adds depth to the conversation. While to incite means to provoke, stimulate, motivate and inform, the title here is also meant to infer that the 27 artists in this exhibition offer insight, understanding, reflection and philosophical mindfulness in their objects.

Through narrative content, representation and figuration, they challenge convention and make visible those injustices that demand our attention and thought. Working in styles that are aggressive, disturbing, irreverent and sometimes humorous, these artists see themselves as visual philosophers bringing personal insight/incite to vital issues confronting society.
