Figuration to Fragmentation: The Human Form in Contemporary Sculpture

A survey mapping the topography of the human condition, the exhibition Figuration to Fragmentation: The Human Form in Contemporary Ceramic Sculpture articulates a clear vision of the role of the figure in contemporary ceramics. The exhibition opens September 11 and runs through October 15. A collaboration between Transylvania’s Morlan Gallery and the University of Kentucky’s Tuska Center for Contemporary Art, the exhibit includes a diverse selection of artists. Tom Bartel, Kira Campbell, Sergei Isupov, and Hunter Stamps will have work shown at Morlan, while Tanya Batura, Anne Drew Potter, Keith Wallace Smith, and Liz Zacher will have work on display at Tuska. The exhibit is free and open to the public at both locations and opening receptions will be held Friday, September 18, from 5-8 p.m. at both galleries to coincide with the Lexington Gallery Hop.
An online catalog will be produced (available for download or purchase from www.lulu.com), featuring an essay by noted ceramic critic, Adam Welch, on the use of the figure in contemporary ceramics. In addition to the exhibit, there will be a lecture series, held at both Transylvania and UK, on consecutive Thursday nights, and a mini-conference, The Role of the Figure in Contemporary Ceramics, at UK on October 1 and 2.
