A stunning new ceramics exhibition featuring artists Lawson Oyekan, William Plumptre, Nicola Tassie and Gavin Turk opens in Kendal.
Curated by Rebecca Scott, Gallery Director at Cross Lane Projects, this new group exhibition foregrounds the diverse ceramic practices of four leading contemporary artists. Cross Lane Gallery is one of several contemporary galleries showcasing an exciting mix of clay work at the moment, positioning what perhaps previously would have been seen as ‘pottery’ in dialogue with more conceptual art works.
These four completely different artists are brought together through a single material that explores the uniqueness of human existence. Through it, they connect not only with each other, but also to a global history of material culture. The exhibition will feature an accompanying essay by Eva Masterman.
