Description

Under the title "Ceramics between time and space", Gmunden aims to continue to live up to its already established reputation as a city of ceramics on a contemporary level. 

Under the title “Ceramics between time and space”, Gmunden aims to continue to live up to its already established reputation as a city of ceramics on a contemporary level. Here, projects between art and craft, theory and practice, inspiration and innovation come together. The result is a sustainable Austrian centre of excellence for ceramics that creates international relevance – from the Salzkammergut! With its wide range of offerings, Gmunden will become a centre for established and future ceramics experts as well as for ceramics enthusiasts and viewers from Austria and abroad. All of the planned initiatives are about awakening the interests of and involving the residents of the Salzkammergut as well as artists and guests from all over the world. A committed public commitment to the focus on ceramics in a historical and contemporary context.

Under the title ALL ABOUT THE VESSEL, the exhibition presents an overview of contemporary ceramic art. In line with the exhibition’s curatorial guidelines, visitors will gain an insight into the development of ceramic forms, from seemingly utilitarian objects to the most extraordinary vessels that can harbour, store and communicate human emotions.
The artists include innovative pioneers of ceramic media, dynamic contemporary and emerging artists. They explore the boundaries of what clay forms can be by weaving together stories, conceptual thinking and the very essential characteristics of vessel forms.
