An Evening with the Artist
Thursday, May 11, 2017, 6:30PM - 8:00PM
Join SWAP Artist Yoko Inoue as she discusses her project "Tea Taste Democracy & Upside Down Objects" with fellow ceramicists to look deeper into why some objects are more valued than others, what makes an object museum-worthy or otherwise sacred, where this sacredness originates, and how functionality and aesthetics either add or erode value in an attempt to find answers where technique and concept meet in the creative process.
Roundtable participants include Yoko Inoue, Gina DeSantis, Kolé Robinson Brooks, Laila Voss, Kristen Cliffel, Seth Nagelberg, Matthew Pritchard, and Zoe Sykora
Light refreshments will be provided.
Free and open to the public.
