In the Cleve Carney Gallery
Tuesday, April 30, 6 pm
Alison Ruttan discusses her new sculptural project, A Bad Idea Seems Good Again, on view in the exhibition nowhere better until May 19, 2013.
The series of ceramic maquettes is based on photographic documentation of global sites of conflict. It archives evidence buried, bulldozed, and carted away as new cities are built a top them. While much of this work may look similar to the effects of natural disasters, it is important to remember that these are not “accidents of nature,” but entirely man made acts of destruction.
Ruttan will address technical challenges and triumphs she had with clay and glaze as well as the conceptual significance of the project.
This program is free and open to the public.
