Sackler CPD Programme members: free

We will start the morning with a tour of Body, Vessel, Clay; Black Women, Ceramics & Contemporary Art at Two Temple Place by Head of Exhibitions, Rebecca Hone. The exhibition spans 70 years of ceramics, celebrating the medium in new and surprising ways.

Beginning with the seminal Nigerian potter, Ladi Kwali, and examining her interaction with 1950s British Studio Pottery, this important new exhibition brings together a rich history with experimental new works by Black women working with clay today.

Following this, we will visit the Collect Art Fair for a tour with curator and collector Sarah Griffin. We will end the morning with a lunch together at Indian House.

Please RSVP to Dr Ilaria Puri Purini at Ilaria@contemporaryartsociety.org to reserve your place.
