From Saturday 29 January - Sunday 24 April, Two Temple Place will showcase work by three generations of Black women artists working with clay.
From the seminal potter Ladi Kwali in 1950s Nigeria, to experimental new works by women of colour working today, we celebrate surprising new ways of exploring one of the world’s oldest artforms.
Through the exhibition, ceramics are shown to be disrupted, questioned and reimagined over the last 70 years, bringing together more than 80 works including ceramics, preparatory drawings, film and archival material, and tracing post-colonial, gender and class perspectives on ceramics, manufacture and ownership across continents.
Work on display will come from Vivian Chinasa Ezugha, Ladi Kwali, Phoebe Collings-James, Shawanda Corbett, Jade Montserrat, Bisila Noha and Magdalene Odundo.
Set in the stunning interiors of our neo-Gothic venue, new perspectives on gender, race and influence will be accompanied by a busy programme of talks, events, workshops, evening opening and learning activities.
The exhibition is curated by independent curator, researcher and writer Dr Jareh Das.
