Bringing together a range of artists working with clay, Possibilities and Losses exposes contemporary thinking and making in this media. These artists challenge traditional perceptions about clay practice and its relationship to the historic model of craft. Possibilities and Losses has been curated by mima together with Clare Twomey, an artist who is at the forefront of practice in this area, and whose work is included in the exhibition. An accompanying publication will map the dialogues and histories that have led crafts makers to seek conceptually challenging practice on the borders of craft knowledge.
