  • The Third Annual Ceramics of America 2012: Exhibition and Art Fair at Fort Mason, San Francisco

    Ceramics Annual of America 2012: Exhibition Art Fair at Fort Mason, San Francisco

    The Third Annual Ceramics of America 2012: Exhibition and Art Fair at Fort Mason, San Francisco, California, USA
    14-16 September, 2012

    Opening Reception and Preview Party: September 13, 2012, 5:30 – 9 pm

    Witness A Unique Experience: Ceramic Sculpture from Around the World

    The Ceramics Annual of America (CAA) is an ambitious exhibition and art fair spotlighting the quality and diversity of contemporary ceramics from around the world including works from China, Korea, Mexico, Australia and Italy. It is the only event of its kind in the United States and the goal is to encourage the education and enrichment of the public, cultivate a fertile art market, and foster dialog between collectors and makers of ceramic sculpture.

    Part of California’s continuing legacy of excellence and innovation in ceramics, the CAA is the largest exhibition and art fair that is entirely focused on ceramic art in America and is modeled after the Ceramic Biennials held in Europe, Korea, Japan and China. It provides a venue for the top regional and international artists from working in the clay medium to show their work to a broader audience of collectors.

    The CAA is organized by the California Ceramics Cooperative, a group of invested regional ceramic artists, and will feature panel discussions, lectures, tours as well as daily interactive art demonstrations from 4-5 that will provide a greater understanding of the artistic process for students and educators alike. Schools located in the Bay Area will have free admission all day Friday and should contact the Ceramics Annual for Reservations. Featured artist and instructor Kevin Nierman, author of “The Kids ‘N’ Clay Ceramics Book,” will provide “Artistic childcare” on Saturday and Sunday from 11-3.

    The exhibition will be held in the 50,000 square ft. Festival Hall at Ft. Mason, capable of accommodating as many as 10,000 people. A popular attraction for countless national and international visitors to the city, Ft. Mason still resonates with the presence of the California Funk movement of the sixties and seventies that inspired ceramic greats living in San Francisco today. Its close proximity to nature, unique architecture and nostalgic atmosphere contribute a breathtaking backdrop for an impressive array of Ceramic Sculptures.

    Last years event was a huge success with over 7,000 people in attendance. The museum quality exhibition included educational lectures by curators such as Peter Selz and Phil Linhares and renowned artists such as Jim Melchert. “The size and scale of such an exhibition and the education opportunities, all under one roof, were extraordinary.” — Art Historian, Peter Selz.

  • Making or unmaking? The Contexts of Contemporary Ceramics - Conference in Bergen, Norway

    Making or unmaking? The Contexts of Contemporary Ceramics, Conference in Bergen, Norway

    The Contexts of Contemporary Ceramics - Conference
    27th - 29th of October 2011

    The opposition between studio and industrial ceramics that has had such a central place in the self-understanding of studio ceramists, no longer seems meaningful. A shift from production to reproduction has taken place. Images and patterns from different sources are appropriated and manipulated. Mass-produced objects, often characterized by disuse, disruption and damage, have come to be increasingly used as raw materials. The relationship between artist and artisan has also changed. The conference focuses on the way in which these changes influence contemporary making, and how they contribute to the unmaking of conventional understanding of ceramics and craft practices in general.

    Glenn Adamson, Barnaby Barford, Marek Cecula, Nicole Cherubini, Mònica Gaspar, Tanya Harrod, Ben Highmore, Gitte Jungersen, Søren Kjørup,Carol McNicoll, Kevin Murrey, Andrew Livingstone, Michael Petry, Mike Press, Paul Scott, Ezra Shales, Richard Slee, Caroline Slotte, Linda Sormin, Hans Stofer, Clare Twomey, Jorunn Veiteberg and Anne Britt Ylvisåker.

  • Transilvania International Film Festival (TIFF 2011), ready to kick-off

    TRANSILVANIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL - TIFF 2011 (10th edition)
    3-12 JUNE 2011, CLUJ-NAPOCA // 15-19 JUNE, SIBIU

    The tenth edition of Transilvania International Film Festival is ready to welcome its guests and audience, with only one day left before the start of the most anticipated Romanian film event. In addition to the 200 films, TIFF 2011 presents its public with a generous offer of special events: the concerts, exhibitions and theater performances are only some of the events that make this year’s edition an unmissable one.

    For the second consecutive year, Unirii Square will host the opening ceremony of the festival, which will take place on Friday, June 3, from 8.30 p.m.  Starting this evening, the heart of Cluj-Napoca will undergo an impressive transformation, turning into a spectacular TIFF open-air venue.

    This year, the opening ceremony has set an impressive surprise in store for the public in Cluj. The French group of artists from the famous Compagnie des Quidams will bring to Ursus Open Air a performance full of magic and light: Herbert’s Dream. The show’s protagonists are extraordinary characters which evolve, depending on theatrical situations. From long, white figures on stilts, the audience will discover creatures from a strange, transforming world. Deformed and grandiose at the same time, clumsy and ethereal, as coming from another planet, with their heads light up they gather round a brilliant star to perform a magic ritual which will help the star ascend to heavens. The show was performed in over 100 cities, on several continents. Moreover, it opened various international events, such as the Dance Biennale in Lyon, the 1998 Football World Cup, Euro 2000 and Euro 2004.

    The film opening the festival’s anniversary edition is Potiche, an entertaining comedy written and directed by Francois Ozon, one of the best-rated French directors at this time. The film is an adaptation of the eponymous theatre play by Pierre Barillet and Jean-Pierre Grédy, and had its world premiere in the official competition of Venice Film Festival 2010. A contemporary social satire, the film is set in the context of the economic crisis afflicting the entire world. The action centers on Robert Pujol, the tyrannical head of the umbrella factory he has inherited from his father-in-law. The inhumane work conditions determine the workers to go on strike, ending with Robert being taken hostage. Suzanne, his wife, steps in and, with the help of her ex lover and present town mayor, tries to free the hostage and end the protest. In the end, Suzanne will take the reins of the factory, managing to restore an almost bankrupt business, to the great surprise of her husband, who is not willing to give up his position as factory director. Francois Ozon brings together a stellar cast, with some of the most important names from French cinema: Catherine Deneuve, recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award offered to an Outstanding Personality of the European Cinema at TIFF 2008, Gérard Depardieu and Fabrice Luchini.

    The TIFF 2011 opening ceremony will not lack important names, personalities from Romanian and international film industry, officials and representatives of foreign press.

    Directors Matias Bize (La vida de los pesces), Michael Madsen (Into Eternity), Fernando Léon de Aranoa (Amador), Miruna Coca-Cozma (Our School) are some of the special guests present, alongside Tudor Giurgiu – Festival President, host of the TIFF opening ceremony, Mihai Chirilov –TIFF’s Artistic Director and Sorin Apostu – Cluj-Napoca’s mayor.

    The male basketball team U Mobitelco BT Cluj, winner of the National Basketball Championship, will also be present at the event.

    The theatre performance series Theatre at TIFF starts on Friday, June 3, with the play 9 degrees in Paris, by Peter Kerek, which will be played at the Hungarian Theater starting 7.30 p.m.

    TIFFashion, the series of events meant to connect the two worlds of film and fashion, also starts at Hotel Continental – the new home of fashion dedicated events, with the exhibit Dressing the Story: Film & Theatre Costumes by Doina Levintza, which can be admired until June 9.

    The first day of the festival is also the first day of screenings at Mănăştur Open Air, a new festival venue, which invites the public living in Mănăștur district, on every TIFF evening. The access to all screenings at Mănăştur Open Air is free.
