Phyllis Wattis Theater

Overview

New Work artists Carneiro da Cunha and Kristalova discuss the ways a traditional form — in this case, ceramics — can continue to invigorate contemporary art. In small sculptures, the artists use clay to invoke childhood, whimsy, fairy tales, and comic books. Tonight we examine craft practice along with that of fine art and look at how craft histories have informed art in the Bay Area.

Participants

Tiago Carneiro da Cunha and Klara Kristalova, artists
