Bodies at Rest: Figurative Clay from RAM’s Collection

March 19 – March 21, 2014

This exhibition, curated by Lena Vigna, 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 took place at NCECA’s (National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts) 48th Annual Conference in Milwaukee, WI, March 19-21, 2014. The exhibition was located in Room 203A in the Wisconsin Center, 400 West Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee, 53203.

Artists in the Exhibition

Adrian Arleo, Jack Earl, Ed Eberle, Verne Funk, Beyerly Mayeri, Esther Shimazu, Kurt Weiser, Beatrice Wood, and more
