At a moment when ceramics are everywhere, Between Things: Alberta Ceramics includes sculptures and installations made by contemporary artists committed to clay to ask how ceramics can activate our experience of and relationship to the world around us. This exhibition examines the ceramic object through three interconnected ideas—the ceramic object in relation to its materials and processes; the ceramic object in relation to its context; and the affective nature of the ceramic object in relation to the self and body. The artists in this exhibition make contemporary ceramics that reconnect us with the material world and each other.
The Art Gallery of Alberta respectfully acknowledges that we are located in Treaty 6 Territory and Region 4 of the Metis Nation of Alberta. We respect this as the traditional and contemporary land of diverse Indigenous Peoples including the Plains Cree, Woodland Cree, Beaver Cree, Nitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Anishinaabe/Saulteaux/Ojibwe and Dene Peoples. We also acknowledge the many Indigenous, Inuit and Métis people who make Alberta their home today.
