FEBRUARY 17–MAY 27, 2018 AT THE FRICK ART MUSEUM
PITTSBURGH, PA, February 5, 2018—The Frick Pittsburgh in Point Breeze announces that Revive, Remix, Respond: Contemporary Ceramic Artists and The Frick Pittsburgh will be presented at The Frick Art Museum beginning February 17, 2018. This exhibition brings an exciting group of works by contemporary artists to the Frick. Curated by Associate Curator of Decorative Arts, Dawn Brean, Revive, Remix, Respond is planned to showcase artists who are breathing new life into the ceramic medium by reinvigorating age-old motifs, processes, and techniques. Twenty artists whose artistic practice is informed by the past were invited to submit work that is inspired by, responds to, or relates to The Frick Pittsburgh’s collection.
The assembled artworks feel simultaneously timeless and familiar yet unexpected. The visual vocabulary borrows from the rich artistic heritage of the 2,000-year-old medium while illuminating diverse issues that range from the contemporary (environmentalism, cross cultural exchange), to the personal (memory, collecting), to the aesthetic (pattern, form, abstraction). The international selection of featured artists includes Beth Lipman, Bouke de Vries, Stephen Bowers, Paul Scott, Caroline Slotte, Chris Antemann, and Evan Hauser, among others.
The exhibition will be staged in the French period room at The Frick Art Museum. Admission is free.
