Jul 30 - Aug 22

Open for First Friday, August 7,  5-9 pm

Opening reception July 30, 2015 7pm
aceartinc, 290 McDermot Avenue
Exhibition continues July 31-August 22, 2015

Curated by Sigrid Dahle, featuring work by Marcel Dzama, Seema Goel, Rachael Kroeker, Jeannie Mah, Monica Mercedes Martinez, and Brendan Tang. This group exhibition includes artists who consciously use ceramic history, material properties and studio and/or commercial production processes to playfully and incisively explore, resist and/or perform unmoored contemporary identities. How are ever-evolving, cross-generational im/migrant experiences, colonial narratives and hybridized identities – what we customarily call ‘globalization’ – enacted in and through the vibrant discourse that is 21st century ceramics? What is it about this medium that renders it so amenable to supporting these timely and compelling investigations? Explore these questions and more when Play, Precarity and Survival opens this July.
