CALL FOR PROPOSALS: CERAMIX
The Australian Ceramics Association Exhibition 2020
Manly Art Gallery & Museum, Sydney NSW
Guest Curator: Sophia Cai
CERAMIX is an exhibition that invites ceramic-based artists to work in collaboration with invited artists of their choice, working in other mediums, to create new works.
By pairing ceramics with non-ceramics practices, CERAMIX will seek to explore the potential outcomes from cross-disciplinary collaboration and dialogue with a focus on experimentation. Moving beyond medium-specificity, CERAMIX will focus on the open possibilities of clay as a starting point for making work.
CERAMIX will be presented at Manly Art Gallery & Museum (Sydney, NSW) in May 2020, and will be accompanied by an exhibition catalogue published in The Journal of Australian Ceramics.
Applications are now open for ceramic-based artists to work in collaboration with an invited artist of their choice. For further info and to apply please visit https://www.australianceramics.com
Curated by Sophia Cai

Exhibition at c3 contemporary art space, Melbourne.
Floor Plan is a group exhibition of object-based works that interrogates the relationship between studio practice and exhibition output. The exhibition brings together five artists who work primarily with hand-shaped sculptural or ceramic practice with a particular interest in the vessel and modes of display. All artists also share an interest in form, function, and materiality, although expressed in diverse ways.
Rather than a static display of objects, Floor Plan will see the curator work closely with the artists over the duration of the exhibition period to change the physical arrangement and display. Another key aspect of this show is that the majority of the artworks are floor-based, making this interactive and evolving mode of display more attainable and immediately felt.
Exhibition details: Floor Plan, 19 September – 14 October 2018, c3 contemporary art space, The Abbotsford Convent, 1 St Heliers Street, Abbotsford VIC 3067. Exhibition opening Wednesday 19 September 6pm.
