Theaster Gates: A Clay Sermon
September 29, 2021 @ 11:00 am - January 9, 2022 @ 6:00 pm
A Clay Sermon is an exhibition of the significance of clay, its material and spiritual legacies. Bringing together research, ideas, process and production, this exhibition surveys works by Theaster Gates across two decades from his early hand-thrown pots to his large-scale Afro-Mingei sculptures. It explores craft, labour, performance and racial identity; the use of clay in building communities of knowledge, its role in colonialism and global trade and the ceremonial and ritual use of ceramics.
