"Particle and Wave" is a groundbreaking exhibition at the Ceramics Research Center of 45 works created by international artists who incorporate paper pulp and organic fibers into their clay, resulting in increased strength and lighter weight. The exhibition showcases a wide range of visual forms, which would not be possible with traditional methods. The artists utilize this technique to express contemporary social and cultural ideas.
"Particle and Wave: PaperClay Illuminated" is organized by Lorie Nelson, the exhibition director and founder of The International Paper Clay Exhibition, curated by Peter Held and sponsored by RedLine Contemporary Art Center. The ASU Art Museum presentation is supported by the Windgate Charitable Foundation as part of the Windgate Contemporary Craft Initiative. Visit the museum website for directions and hours and information about bringing classes to tour exhibitions or meet with curators.
