Social Objects features recent work from members of the Socially Engaged Craft Collective, an expanding network of artists who create a wide range of socially engaged art projects that are rooted in the rich history of ceramic objects. The exhibition displays objects that developed from the lineage of ceramic craft and simultaneously engage viewers in a social experience surrounding the object. The role that potters and artisans play in society has changed, and what we are doing reflects that change. These objects serve a social function beyond a utility or aesthetic, they have the potential to share interactions, create experiences, and build community.
Social Objects aims to broaden the lens with which we commonly view art by showcasing projects that act as a catalyst for change and growing community. From meal sharing to interactive art and performance, the exhibition represents diversity within the ceramic field.
