Strange Clay: Ceramics in Contemporary Art - Hayward Gallery London

We were so excited to attend the press viewing at Hayward Gallery presents Strange Clay: Ceramics in Contemporary Art which is one of the first large-scale group exhibitions in the UK to explore how contemporary artists have used the medium of clay in inventive ways. 

We were in awe as we wondered around the exhibits exploring the ceramics from artists all around the world. 

Breathtaking beautiful

 We loved the large-scale eccentric exhibits

Strange Clay offers a timely reflection on this vital and popular medium and features 23 international and multi-generational artists, from Betty Woodman, Beate Kuhn, Ron Nagle and Ken Price, to a new generation of artists pushing the boundaries of ceramics today, the exhibition explores the potential of clay through a variety of engaging artworks and displays.

Each artwork varied in scale, finish and technique, and address topics that range from architecture to social justice, the body, the domestic, the political and the organic. Regardless of background or route into the material, all of the artists in the exhibition celebrate the sheer possibility and versatility of clay.
