How artists from Ron Nagle to Woody De Othello have reinvigorated clay as a medium for contemporary art

Few materials have experienced a similar reevaluation in contemporary art as clay has over the past few years. This timely publication accompanies a large-scale exhibition at Hayward Gallery, London, exploring how contemporary artists are using clay and ceramics in inventive and surprising ways, pushing the boundaries of the medium.

Featuring the work of over 20 international artists–from Grayson Perry to Woody De Othello–an introductory essay by curator Cliff Lauson, a text on the history of fine art and ceramics by writer and critic Amy Sherlock and a round-table discussion with artists from the exhibition, this catalog is an exciting contribution to the ongoing conversation about the relationship between art and craft.

Artists include: Salvatore Arancio, Leilah Babiryre, Jonathan Baldock, Lubna Chowdhary, Woody De Othello, Edmund de Waal, Emma Hart, Rachel Kneebone, Serena Korda, Klara Kristalova, Beate Kuhn, Takuro Kuwata, Jianhua Liu, Lindsey Mendick, Ron Nagle, Magdalene Odundo, Grayson Perry, Shahpour Pouyan, Ken Price, Brie Ruais, Betty Woodman and David Zink Yi.

About the Author: Located in London’s Southbank Centre Hayward Gallery’s year-round exhibition program focuses on presenting a wide range of adventurous and influential artists from across the world.
