Strange Clay: Ceramics in Contemporary Art (Southbank Centre, London)

Cliff Lauson, Allie Biswas

Hayward Gallery Publications & Hatje Cantz, 2022


How artists from Ron Nagle to Woody De Othello have reinvigorated clay as a medium for contemporary art.
Few materials have experienced a similar reevaluation in contemporary art as clay has in the past few years. This timely publication accompanies a large-scale exhibition at Hayward Gallery, London, exploring how contemporary artists are using clay and ceramics in inventive and surprising ways, pushing the boundaries of the medium. Featuring the work of over 20 international artists—from Grayson Perry to Woody De Othello—an introductory essay by curator Cliff Lauson, a text on the history of fine art and ceramics by writer and critic Amy Sherlock, and a round table discussion with the artists from the exhibition, this catalogue is a meaningful contribution to the ongoing conversation about the relationship between art and craft.
Featuring works by Aaron Angell, Salvatore Arancio, Leilah Babirye, Jonathan Baldock, Lubna Chowdhary, Edmund de Waal, Emma Hart, Liu Jianhua, Rachel Kneebone, Serena Korda, Klara Kristalova, Beate Kuhn, Takuro Kuwata, Lindsey Mendick, Ron Nagle, Magdalene Odundo, Woody De Othello, Grayson Perry, Shahpour Pouyan, Ken Price, Brie Ruais, Betty Woodman and David Zink Yi.
