Program Description

Discover the new exhibition Voulkos: The Breakthrough Years with Windgate Research and Collections Curator Elissa Auther and artist Arlene Shechet as your guides. Spanning the years 1953–1968, the exhibition pays tribute to the early career of Peter Voulkos and the radical methods and ideas developed during this period, which opened up the possibilities for ceramics in ways that are still being felt today.

At the conclusion of the 6:00 pm tour, visitors will be invited to join the 6:30 pm Curator-led Tour of Coille Hooven: Tell It By Heart and Chris Antemann: Forbidden Fruit by William and Mildred Lasdon Chief Curator Shannon R. Stratton and feminist scholar Jenni Sorkin followed by the panel discussion Voulkos, Then and Now.

The exhibition is part of MAD Transformations, a series of six exhibitions presented this fall that address artists who have transformed and continue to transform our perceptions of traditional craft mediums.
