| Clay in Contemporary Art
Few materials have experienced a similar reevaluation in contemporary art as clay has in the past few years. This timely publication accompanies a large-scale exhibition at Hayward Gallery, London, exploring how contemporary artists are using clay and ceramics in inventive and surprising ways, pushing the boundaries of the medium. Featuring the work of over 20 international artists—from Grayson Perry to Woody De Othello—an introductory essay by curator Cliff Lauson, a text on the history of fine art and ceramics by writer and critic Amy Sherlock, and a round table discussion with the artists from the exhibition, this catalogue is a meaningful contribution to the ongoing conversation about the relationship between art and craft.

Located in London’s Southbank Center HAYWARD GALLERY’s year-round exhibition program focuses on presenting a wide range of adventurous and influential artists from across the world.
