Clay Holds Water, Water Holds Memory
This exhibition is a celebration—like electrical current moving from negative to positive—of the work that has been brought about by the perseverance of the Black women and Black non-binary artists working in clay.
Featuring work from 19 artists from North America, the Caribbean, and Africa, these objects tell the stories of histories, speak to diverse identities, promote healing and community, and demand real action.
What does real diversity, equity, and inclusivity look like in ceramic institutions, organizations, and curated exhibitions?
This exhibition is brought to the CAC as part of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) Annual Conference, hosted in Cincinnati in 2023. NCECA is an organization based in the United States. It was founded in 1966 to serve the interests of ceramics as an art form and in creative education.
