COILLE HOOVEN: Dancing for the Moon

Monterey Museum of Art

November 15, 2018 – February 18, 2019

Coille Hooven is often referred to as the first ceramist to bring feminism to clay. Hooven’s use of household objects has been the core of her work. Coille Hooven: Dancing for the Moon assembles Hooven’s fantastical porcelain shoes, finger puppets, and magic carpets. The work speaks to her desire for storytelling and fables.

The Women Who Changed California Clay
A Critical Discussion

Join the Monterey Museum of Art as we gather an expert panel of curators, scholars, art dealers, and gallerists to discuss how women shaped California Ceramics in the second half of the 20th Century.  Through great art and feminist activism, ceramicists such as Coille Hooven (on display at the museum) forged the way for current generations of women in ceramics and glass arts.
