Renowned taste-maker Jeffrey Deitch presents a major group exhibition bringing together 37 artists working with a medium of the moment: ceramics.
Clay Pop, curated by Alia Williams, highlights the diversity of contemporary artists reenvisioning ceramic sculpture, from Genesis Belanger and Woody De Othello to Dominique Fung and Adam Silverman.
'Clay is being pushed beyond the confines of craft and design' notes the exhibition text, and the included artists 'are exploring issues of gender, race and identity, using clay in new ways to engage with social issues.'
The show runs in his New York location from 10 September to 30 October 2021.
