Ceramics Shows In Paris And Iac
Posted 25 September 2010 - 04:19 PM
The best reception that I was able to attend was at the Sevres Porcelain Factory museum across the Seine from the Pont du Sevres metro stop.
I met up with my new Irish friend, Orlaith Ross who was a temporary intern at Sevres while in Paris for her show. I ran into several old friends who are members of the International Academy of Ceramics and who were exhibiting at the members show.
That was one of the best of the 40 exhibitions and with the widest range of work from installations on the lower floor to members on the 4th floor. Every venue was represented..wood fired, low fire sculpture, figurative, abstract, all surfaces explored,. I feel really fortunate to have seen so much. The show where Orlaith was exhibiting was called, The Next Generation. I think the artists were young Europeans from severals countries. Photos weren't allowed with respect for the artists. The next generation had very interesting sculptural pieces, several were very thought provoking. Two used photo imagery. The museum of Decorative Arts had a major exhibition also. And the Louvre of Antiques had a show paying homage to Palissy, with work representing artists from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. That was one of my favorites. Being a city girl at heart, I enjoyed exploring several parts of the city over my 5 days alone. Here is the link to the event.
