VIGOROUS FORM, a new contemporary ceramics show showcases works by European and American artists Andrew Casto, Tessa Eastman, Shannon Goff, David Hicks, Linda Lopez and Alex Simpson. The exhibition is inspired by Rose Slivka’s 1961 poignant essay, ‘The New Ceramic Presence’.


Writing about the ceramic boom in the US in the late 1950s, in her essay Slivka highlights the emerging dominance of the machine and consumers’ new found desire for the real and the handmade. 

In today’s technological obsessed society, this is more prevalent now than ever, and the show explores the complex sources of modern ceramics, its widespread reintegration into the wider context of contemporary art and the genesis of vigorous new forms. Taking these ideals into consideration, the new exhibition represents not only the relationship between conceptual boldness and ambitious experimentation but also the growing relationship between contemporary art and ceramics.

Vigorous Form takes place from Friday, 17 November to Friday, 24 November at The Gallery, Unit 9 Huntingdon Estate, London. The gallery is open from 11am-7pm daily. For more information on the exhibition, visit www.courtenaymoon.com/vigorous-form/
