Bodies at Rest: Figurative Clay from RAM’s Collection

March 19 - March 21, 2014

This exhibition features contemporary approaches to representing the human figure in clay. Drawn from RAM’s strong and diverse holdings of ceramics, Bodies at Rest is a sampler of artists addressing the body—and ultimately, the human condition—in both form and content. This exhibition is curated by Lena Vigna.
