Taking Space, Making Space: Japanese Women Ceramic Artists
Thursday, December 14, 2023 at 5pm ET
Coinciding with Radical Clay: Contemporary Japanese Women Artists, which opens at the Art Institute of Chicago just a few days later, Joan B Mirviss LTD‘s upcoming Zoom talk will explore the vital role of 20th and 21st century Japanese women clay artists within Japanese ceramics today. Drawn from the Carol and Jeffrey Horvitz Collection and featuring work by 20 of their gallery artists, the museum exhibition celebrates the achievements and profound influence of these creative visionaries in a traditionally male-dominated ceramics field.
Panelists for this event include key figures who contributed to this important exhibition, including: collector and museum patron Carol Horvitz, curator and Radical Clay catalogue contributor Hollis Goodall, and two prominent gallery artists featured in the exhibition, Tashima Etsuko and Tomita Mikiko, who represent different generational perspectives.
