Angelik Vizcarrondo-Laboy

Curatorial Fellowship

2020

Sleight of Hand brings together sculptures in clay by contemporary artists that echo themes and aesthetics of 1960s–70s Funk ceramics. Put in conversation with historical pieces, the line between past and present is blurred, bridging the gap between the current generation and the pioneering artists who paved the way for ceramics to be imaginative, expressive, critical, and unapologetic.
