Featuring 15 emerging ceramic artists with diverse practices and backgrounds who have studied and trained in the Lower Mainland and greater British Columbia. This exciting community of makers, designers, and artists offer a unique glimpse into the future of ceramics.
Creating work out of materials dug from the ground, these young artists find themselves in relation to the earth through their unique relationships to clay, the landscape, and the land we all share, but their work shows the sky is truly the limit of what is possible in ceramics.
“Today, ceramics is really having a moment. Objects made from clay are so ubiquitous in our day to day lives, it is an incredibly accessible medium. Earthbound is our opportunity to show the dynamic world of ceramics beyond mugs and teapots.” said curator Anthony Dunlop. The
exhibition includes traditional pottery, functional ceramics and ceramic installations, sculptures, video, and digital ceramics showing the future of the art form being made right here.
Earthbound features works by Simone Adams, Hee-Jun Ahn, Angelo Barbosa, Michelle Bourget, Alexandra Box, Dora Chen, Anthony Dunlop, Rui Han, Anna Luth, Mitra Mahmoodi, Matthew Scott, Serisa Fitz-James, Jackie Talmey-Lennon, Winnie Tosetti, May-Anne Villanueva, and Cynthia Yang
