CERAMICS 2. - Garth Clark, Cork

The second week we had this great opportunity to visit a speach by Garth Clarke, leading writer on contemporary ceramic art and outspoken critic of the crafts movement. The talk, following by interesting discussion, took place on 24th March 2012 at CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery Cork.

Gart Clark was talking about Ai Weiwei's exhibition of 100 million ceramic sunflower seeds in Tate Gallery. Here is a short video about the actual exhibition:

The following video shows Garth Clark and his business partner Mark DelVecchio. They are talking about their galleries in Los Angeles and New York. Very inspirational talk:

On the following picture we can see Garth Clark in lively discussion with Mike Byrne taken at the actual talk in Cork:

I took this small image which shows close up of a projected image on Garth Clark's jacket. Wouldn't it be an interesting piece of ceramics? Maybe a vessel with a print?
