Abstract

Auto-materiality a conceptual ceramic/mixed media artwork is exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, where it forms part of the Garth Clark and Mark Del Vecchio permanent collection. The following is taken from the museums press release for the exhibition.
Beginning in the 1960s, collectors Garth Clark and Mark Del Vecchio assembled over five decades an unparalleled collection of modern and contemporary ceramics, focusing on objects that individually and collectively challenge traditional expectations of the medium. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, acquired this landmark collection, giving the museum one of the most important collections of post-World War II ceramics in the world. From March 4 to June 3, 2012, the MFAH will present the exhibition Shifting Paradigms in Contemporary Ceramics: The Garth Clark and Mark Del Vecchio Collection, celebrating the museum’s acquisition of the Clark/Del Vecchio collection and presenting it on a large scale for the first time. Organized by Cindi Strauss, MFAH curator of modern and contemporary decorative arts and design, Shifting Paradigms in Contemporary Ceramics will reveal new research in the field and present clay art in a new light.There is a 496 page supporting publication to accompany the exhibition and collection.
