SHOP Taka Ishii Gallery and the Hong Kong Art Gallery Association are delighted to co-present a special talk between Aric Chen, Curatorial Director at Design Miami and Curator at Large at M+, and Alexandra Seno, Head of Development, Asia Art Archive. The talk, titled “Art vs Craft: Contemporary Ceramics in America and Japan”, will share insightful observations on the development of contemporary ceramics from an institutional perspective, in conjunction with the gallery’s current exhibition “±8 — A Group Exhibition of Contemporary Ceramics“.
“±8” is an exhibition featuring eight Japanese and American artists who work with ceramics. Curated by Kentaro Kawabata, a Japanese ceramist of the emerging generation, this group exhibition introduces up-to-date sculptural ceramic works from an artist’s perspective, a position that is closest to the current of representation.
