Lecture: To the Moon and Beyond – Glenn Adamson
January 30, 2020 at 6:00 pm - 6:50 pmFree
In this inaugural lecture of the Windgate Distinguished Lecture Series, Glenn Adamson will give context to Contemporary British Studio Ceramics from the Arkansas Arts Center Foundation Collection on view in the Brad Cushman Gallery, Windgate Center of Art + Design, January 16 – March 7. Adamson will talk about the exhibition Things of Beauty Growing: British Studio Pottery, which he co-curated at the Yale Center for British Art in 2017. Surveying a century of creativity in the ceramic field, the exhibition rotated particularly around the encounter between tradition and modernity. Beginning from the famous Korean Moon Jar – an icon for potters including Bernard Leach and Lucie Rie – Adamson will trace this opposition and the way it shaped the discipline.
A reception immediately follows Adamson’s lecture.
