NCECA 48th Annual Conference - National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts

Wisconsin Center

EVENT DESCRIPTION

Overview:

Material World, NCECA’s 48th Annual Conference in Milwaukee, WI in 2014, will be dedicated to the investigation of the complex ways that materials acquire meaning through the things that we make and those that surround us in our daily lives. Exhibitions and programs will expand on traditional definitions of fine and decorative arts, craft and design in the context of the 21st century.

The material world has the ability to cause an interruption in our presumed understanding of something, as it is literally impossible to ignore. The weight of a cup, the thin layers of glaze on a surface and the weight of sculpture all mediate a relationship between the object and viewer.  While we make things, things have the ability to make us as well, influencing our understanding of place, time and culture.

Thematically, Material World will explore the moment when an object stands out against the backdrop of the world in which it exists and is able to be seen and understood in surprising and new ways.

Expo:

NCECA's Gallery Expo features displays of extraordinary works in clay-- functional, decorative and sculptural-- all of which are available for purchase by visitors. Open to the public from Tuesday evening to Friday afternoon of conference week, representatives and artists from participating galleries are scheduled to make brief presentations that illuminate the process of creation as well as the joy of collecting and using contemporary ceramic works by leading makers. The galleries involved create a unique opportunity to experience and acquire works that might not otherwise be available in the conference region.

The NCECA Gallery Expo, Projects Space and Special Exhibits will be held in Exhibit Hall A of the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee, 400 W. Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53203. This is the same space as Commercial and Non Profit “Resource Hall.”  Access to the Gallery Expo will be free and open to the public and precede entry to the Resource Hall.  Information about the Center can be found at http://wisconsincenter.org/categories/2-wisconsincenter
