Monday Lunchtime Talks On China

Ahead of the Curve

New China from China

Helen Brown (Freelance Curator) and Claire Blakey (Arts Curator, The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery, Stoke-on-Trent)

Direct from China, this ground-breaking exhibition showcases contemporary ceramics and glass from emerging and established Chinese artists at The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery, Stoke-on-Trent. China is traditionally associated with imperial porcelain or modern mass-production. Ahead of the Curve includes striking new work and demonstrate current trends and practices from the traditional porcelain city of Jingdezhen and other artistic centres across China. The twenty artists featured in this exhibition challenge traditional approaches to porcelain and glass in a variety of ways.

Helen Brown and Claire Blakey will speak about this touring exhibition, which is the result of a five year project and research visits to Jingdezhen and Shanghai. The talk will give an idea of the behind- the-scenes work necessary to put on an exhibition of this type, as well as give more information about some of the artists featured in the show.

All the Confucius Institute public talks are free to attend and there is no need to book. Please note that the day of our lunchtime talks has now CHANGED to Monday!
