The Precious Clay

Porcelain in Contemporary Art  

20th September 2018 - 20th March 2019

Museum of Royal Worcester

Severn Street, Worcester, WR1 2N

Meadow Arts and the Museum of Royal Worcester present an exhibition exploring contemporary art and porcelain, The Precious Clay. The exhibition will examine why and how artists choose to use this legendary material in their practice. With its origins in the Far East and a long global history, porcelain holds rich associations of preciousness, mutability and exoticism: the artists' work responds to these associations in lively and inventive ways.

With new commissions by Laura White and Emily Speed shown alongside work by artists including Annie Attridge, Barnaby Barford, Bouke de Vries, Céline Berger, Christine Borland, Clare Twomey, Edmund de Waal, Edward Chell, Fernando Casasempere, Jessica Harrison, Leonora Lockhart, Livia Marin, Matteo Nasini, Mona Hatoum, Neil Brownsword, Rachel Kneebone and Rosa Nguyen, plus a special interactive project by Storymine, the exhibition is an opportunity to see the museum's newly displayed world-class collection through the eyes and imaginations of contemporary artists.
