sp_websquare

This exhibition brings together objects that navigate complicated expressions of sexuality, gender identity, and queerness in contemporary ceramics. Six artists, at various stages in their careers, skillfully give voice to themes of sexual politics, from quiet suggestions to overt articulations, through a full variety of ceramic expressions—functional vessels, wall tiles, and sculptural forms. In the past four decades, our society has seen dramatic shifts in the visibility and social acceptance of sexual and gender identities and expressions once dismissed simply as deviant. Through humor, irony, and tension, Sexual Politics aims to acknowledge these changes, pause in the moment, and problematize the future. Curated by Kelly Connole, Sexual Politics features the work of Jeremy Brooks (Carbondale, IL), Mark Burns (Las Vegas, NV), Ron Geibel (Port Chester, NY), Kathy King (Boston, MA), Christina West (Marietta, GA), and Dustin Yager (Minneapolis, MN).
