How is clay being used today in dynamic, interactive and innovative ways? Unconventional Clay: Engaged in Change explores connections between clay, art, social issues and process. Works by 24 artists range from vessels to large scale installations, with artists responding to contemporary issues while employing innovative approaches to the medium. The exhibition will present ways that projection, 3D modeling, video and advanced materials can be combined in ways that have an aesthetic and intellectual impact irrespective of their size, but rather in the way they engage viewers. Unconventional Clay will also investigate the ways that community-oriented artists create projects that address audience interactivity.
