Join us for an exclusive members-only lecture on Conversing in Clay: Ceramics from the LACMA Collection with Staci Steinberger, Associate Curator, Decorative Arts and Design, and Rosie Mills, The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation Associate Curator, Decorative Arts and Design.

This exhibition explores the medium of ceramics through 14 case studies, placing historical works in visual dialogue with contemporary examples to illuminate symbolic meanings, technical achievements, and resonances throughout time. The exhibition examines how artists working today relate to international artistic traditions of the medium, both through deliberate references to the past and by engaging with aspects of clay’s materiality that have inspired makers over the centuries. Drawing from LACMA’s wide-ranging collections, the exhibition also highlights many recent contemporary acquisitions.

Guests will have an opportunity to participate during the conversation’s question and answer period via Zoom’s Q&A function.
