January 28 – May 6, 2018
CAFAM‘s first clay biennial focuses on artistic practices that are currently expanding the conceptual, aesthetic, and sociopolitical potential of the ceramic object. Melting Point presents works from both emerging and established artists that push traditional processes of working with clay and question pre-conceived definitions of the ceramic object. Works in the exhibition include sculptural objects, site-specific installations, and performative works.
Exhibition artists: Brian Benfer, Susannah Biondo-Gemmell, Ling Chun, Armando Cortes, Patsy Cox, Julia Haft-Candell, Stanton Hunter, Kahlil Robert Irving, Trevor King, Jennifer Ling Datchuk, Linda Lopez, Walter McConnell, Ben Medansky, Jonathan Mess, Kristen Morgin, Wayne Perry, Jami Porter Lara, Brian Rochefort, Anthony Sonnenberg, Emily Sudd, Cheryl Ann Thomas, and Matt Wedel.
This exhibition is funded in part by The Boardman Family Foundation; the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs; and the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, with in-kind support from Laguna Clay Company.
