Amy Lee Sanford. Reminiscence. A Southeast Asian Female Artists Exhibition. Southeast Asian Contemporary Ceramics is an emerging field which is underrepresented in the American cultural landscape, and artistic community.
It is my goal as an aspiring curator to share ceramic work by artists of Southeast Asian descent to an international audience. This exhibition focuses on female artists of Southeast Asian descent. In connection with this year’s themes of “Rivers”, “Reflections” and “Invention”, the artists in the show are chosen not only by the ancestry background but also their diverse practices.
Omar Viktor - Afrika Museum. Omar Victor Diop was born in Dakar in 1980.
Since his early days, Omar Victor Diop developed an interest for Photography and Design, essentially as a means to capture the diversity of modern african societies and lifestyles. The quick success of his first conceptual project Fashion 2112, le Futur du Beau which was featured at the Pan African Exhibition of the African Biennale of Photography of 2011 in Bamako (Rencontres de Bamako) encouraged him to end his carrer in Corporate Communications to dedicate to photography in 2012.
Lina Iris Viktor - Afrika Museum. Lina Iris Viktor is a conceptual artist, performance artist, and painter.
She lives and works between New York and London. Raised in London to Liberian parents, she traveled extensively in her youth, also living in Johannesburg, South Africa for many years. The multi-disciplinary approach to her work, which weaves disparate materials and methods belonging both to contemporary and ancient art forms, calls into question the nature of time and being. Her works are a merging of photography, performance and abstract painting, along with the ancient practice of gilding with 24-karat gold to create increasingly dark canvases embedded with “layers of light” in the form of symbols and intricate patterns.
Kwame Akoto-Bamfo - Afrika Museum. Patric Douhger - Afrika Museum. Clay in Transit: Contemporary Mexican Ceramics – Newcomb Art Museum. Ana Gómez (b. 1973) creates works that integrate design, Conceptual art, and Participatory art.
Encouraging reflection on consumerism, globalization, and mass media, her pieces function as archeological remnants of contemporary culture. She holds a BA in Graphic Design from the Universidad Autonoma del Noroeste and a Masters in Visual Arts from the Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. In southwest Colorado, high tech plays in the mud to produce ecologically sound architecture. Meet Arinze Stanley, Nigeria's Famous Hyper-Realistic Artist. Watch This Beautiful Mexican Pottery Emerge from Clay. ALTERING POTTERY - 7 different ways on the WHEEL! 3D Printers Are Changing The Kind Of Pottery We Can Make. Rael San Fratello 3D prints mud structures as prototypes for low-cost construction. To explore the possibilities of mud architecture, Rael San Fratello has created 3D-printed prototypes that take cues from historical earthen construction built along the Rio Grande river.
Led by architects Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello, Rael San Fratello created four mud structures as part of its Emerging Objects investigative series into 3D printing. The project called Mud Frontiers resulted in 3D-printed designs – Hearth, Beacon, Lookout and Kiln – that the studio believes could help to provide solutions for more affordable construction.
