MADE IN CHINA: THE NEW EXPORT WARE
at the Ferrin Contemporary Special Exhibition Booth on the 3rd Floor MADE IN CHINA examines the contemporary, ceramic-centric exchange between eastern and western artists and markets. Marked by ever-increasing cross-cultural collaboration, this contemporary ceramics movement emerging from China is urging a re-definition of today’s export ware.
Exploring the growing cultural exchange between east and west.
With increasing frequency, western artists are traveling to China to produce ceramic work using traditional Chinese methods. In this exhibition, Ferrin Contemporary brings together work that reveals the essential aspects of contemporary ceramics currently coming out of China.
It is a dynamic relationship with appropriation and collaboration occurring in both directions.
