About Face: Contemporary Ceramic Sculpture examines the lineage and influence between the revolutionary first generation of ceramic artists working in the figural genre and the artists working today. Bringing together approximately 50 objects by emerging, mid-career, and master artists who work within a figurative clay tradition, the exhibition investigates how history and place inform the work of contemporary ceramicists. Through their work, these artists use the human form as a vehicle to explore issues relating to the body, various cultural concerns, and concepts relating to female/male contemplation.
