Connecting Through Clay
Please note, this event has expired.
Connecting Through Clay is an interactive gallery exhibition opening Oct. 7th at Julia Martin Gallery highlighting some of Nashville’s top clay artists.
Connecting Through Clay is a unique gallery exhibition showcasing local contemporary ceramic works curated by Influx. The exhibition opens on October 7th as a part of the Wedgewood/Houston Gallery Crawl at Julia Martin Gallery and runs until November 27th. The purpose of the exhibition is to bring people together through an interactive art experience.
Taking inspiration from Social Practice Art, and a desire to acknowledge and celebrate differences, every vessel created will be sold with clearly displayed rules explaining that, a month after the initial purchase, the vase must be given away. The person it is given to should be someone whom you would normally not give a gift to (like a long lost friend or relative, someone with opposing religious beliefs or political views, or someone from a different socioeconomic group, racial background, or sexual orientation, etc). The new owner is asked to live with the vase for another 30 days and then pass it on to another person with the same above criteria; resulting in 3 interactions. The entire project will be documented through social media, an email survey, postcards, etc. with the hopes of showcasing what happens when we are asked to engage with someone whom we may not normally go out of our way to give a gift to. In this climate of cultural divides, our goal is to help bring people together.
