People who have saved this event:



Together Hans Coper and Lucie Rie exerted a profound influence on the development of studio ceramics in Britain. They presented a fundamental challenge to the dominant ideas of Bernard Leach, based on a Far Eastern aesthetic, by introducing ideas of European Modernism into their practice. This exhibition presents major works by Rie and Coper drawn from mima's collection. It launches the long-term loan of the prestigious Abercairn Collection to mima which features some of the most significant works by these artists in private hands, and features major works from the Crafts Council's collection, the national collection of contemporary craft. Acquisitions supported by the V&A Purchase Grant Fund.
