Canadian Imperative / Redesigned Medalta
Jan.23-26, opening reception Saturday, Jan. 25th 2-8pm.
867 Dundas St. W

Two shows, one great venue. Showing at MADE as part of DoDesign during the Toronto Design Offsite Festival. This new body of work takes wisdom from the streets of Canada with a series graffiti prints on vintage Medalta and Hycroft ceramics sourced during my current residency at Medalta Potteries.

June 14, 2013 – April 27, 2014
National Museum of Art, Architecture & Design
St. Olavs Gate 1, Oslo

The exhibition is a visual narrative, illustrating the journey of landscapes, images and patterns through differing media to their realisation on the blue, black, pink, white tableware of The National Museum’s Decorative Arts Collection. Woven into the display of historical ceramics are etchings, engravings and lithographs, as well as objects made by contemporary artists who appropriate this historical genre to observe, record, comment and re-animate. The result is an unexpected journey through cultures, politics, histories and geographies – one that invites us to see a whole group of objects in a new way.

The exhibition includes artists Stephen Bird (Australia), Stephen Bowers (Australia), Robert Dawson (UK), Leopold Foulem (Canada), Maria Geszler (Hungary), Trine Hovden (Norway), Garth Johnson (USA), Felix Hug (Switzerland), Laura McKibbon (Canada), Carol McNicoll (UK), Paul Scott (UK), Richard Shaw (USA), Caroline Slotte (Finland), Anne Line Sund (Norway), Marit Tingleff (Norway), Gerry Wedd (Australia), Magdalena Gerber (Switzerland)

Curator: Paul Scott in collaboration with Inger Helene Stemshaug and Knut Astrup Bull (The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design)
